    Snowpack Discussion

    Up to 30 cm of recent low density snow could have formed storm slab in the alpine and treeline on terrain features that are above threshold for avalanches. This new snow overlies large surface hoar in sheltered terrain.

    At treeline, the height of snow ranges from approximately 60 to 90 cm. Below this elevation, snow height decreases drastically. The snowpack at all elevations is very shallow and contains many potential hazards just beneath the surface.
