Avalanche Danger
Considerable (3)
Valid Friday, Apr 16th 3:00pm PDT 7 hours ago
Until Saturday, Apr 17th 3:00pm PDT

No overnight freeze combined with 3000m freezing levels means less window for safe travel, even early in the morning. Steer clear of steep slopes when they are moist or wet and give cornices a wide birth. Check out the Forecaster's Blogfor information on spring conditions.

Lingering wind slabs may still be reactive in isolated locations on steep northerly aspects in the alpine that still have dry snow. All other terrain has been undergoing a melt-freeze cycle with successive days of warm sunny weather. Things will be "more melt, less freeze" on Saturday as we do not expect a good overnight recovery. 

Strong solar radiation and warming will trigger more wet loose avalanches on Saturday as the snow loses cohesion. Cornices are large and fragile. Cornice falls could trigger large avalanches on the slopes below.

The snowpack is overall strong and settled in most areas, however, sustained warming can increase the likelihood of large avalanches failing on deeply buried weak layers.This is most likely to occur on steep, rocky alpine slopes with a shallow or thin to thick snowpack.

Glide cracks releasing as full depth glide slab avalanches become more common in the spring and are extremely difficult to predict. Best practice is to avoid slopes with glide cracks.

Numerous natural and explosives triggered wet loose and cornice failures avalanches in the size 2-3 range have been reported in the last few days on all elevations and aspects. Glide avalanches have also been reported.
