Snowpack Summary

Alpine areas are still snowbound will likely have areas of snow until July!  Its important to remember taht if there is enough snow to walk on there is enough snow to slide.  Many summer avalanche accidents involve loose wet avalanches with people either ascending or descending in the heat of the day.  Cornices are also a concern so give these features a good berth and never stand on them.
