The alpine rating is below threshold, the treeline rating is below threshold, and the below treeline rating is below threshold. Known problems include Loose Dry and Wind Slabs.

Thin snow coverage is the biggest hazard at the moment; expect to hit rocks, stumps etc. in most areas if attempting to ski/board. If snow cover is sufficient to link turns, avalanches are a possibility. Daily avalanche forecasts begin November 1st.
