Avalanche Forecasts are for use by experienced backcountry travelers in uncontrolled sidecountry and backcountry terrain. These forecasts and conditions do not apply to open, in-bounds terrain at ski resorts, which is subject to avalanche control by local resort ski patrol.
Warning! This is an outdated forecast.
Challenging travel conditions exist at treeline and below.
Pockets of wind-affected snow may be found on the highest ridgetops.
15-25 cm of moist snow or a frozen crust may be found on the surface at uppermost elevations. This recent snow is settling rapidly and bonding well to the warm and moist snow beneath. The snowpack below 1500 m has been soaked with rain or diminishing rapidly. Total snow depths at ski hills and remote stations are 50 to 70 cm, with closer to 100 cm possible at treeline. Many areas are below the threshold depth for avalanches.
No recent avalanches have been reported. Recent wet snow and rain may have caused wet loose avalanches in steep terrain, but field observations are limited.
If you head into the backcountry by any method of travel, please consider submitting observations and/or photos on the Mountain Information Network.
