Expect storm slab formation on Tuesday with new snow, strong winds, and cooling temperatures.




Avalanche Summary

We expect recent warm temperatures and forecast heavy precipitation to produce a natural avalanche cycle at higher elevations.

Snowpack Summary

New rain and snow will fall atop generally moist snow surfaces or variable crusts. Dry snow may persist on the highest north-facing alpine slopes, but this is likely becoming increasingly hard to find.

The mid and lower snowpack is generally settled and strong. At lower elevations, spring is quickly approaching.
