Expect a variety of surface conditions from surface facets to wind slabs, and sun crusts . Sun crusts will be found on steeper solar terrain making for difficult travel. Moderate to strong winds have deposited thin wind slabs on exposed terrain features at ridge-top and exposed treeline areas. The mid and lower snowpack is well settled and strong.
No new avalanche activity was observed in the highway corridor over the past few days, nor have there been any new avalanche reports from the backcountry. Several loose, dry point releases from steep solar aspects were noted recently, generally failing in the surface facets.
