The upper snowpack continues to strengthen with cooling temperatures, though travel conditions remain challenging.




Avalanche Summary

No recent avalanche activity has been reported.

Snowpack Summary

Anywhere from 0 to 20 cm of dry snow sits atop a widespread hard crust. In general, the crust is strong and supportive to travel on.

Below the crust, the upper snowpack continues to refreeze and strengthen.

The mid and lower snowpack consists of various weak layers primarily made up of crust and facet combinations. These layers are currently unlikely to be triggered with the presence of a supportive crust above.

Terrain and Travel Advice

  • When a thick, melt-freeze surface crust is present, avalanche activity is unlikely.
  • Wind slabs may be poorly bonded to the underlying crust.
  • Avalanche hazard may have improved, but be mindful that deep instabilities are still present.


Persistent Slabs

An icon showing Persistent Slabs

In areas where the surface crust isn't present or doesn't support your weight, weak layers deeper in the snowpack could still be human-triggered.
