Avalanche Danger
Moderate (2)
Valid Thursday, Apr 22nd 4:00pm PDT 42 minutes ago
Until Friday, Apr 23rd 4:00pm PDT

Change is in the air, but even short periods of sunshine combined with high freezing levels can pack a punch. Loose wet avalanches are possible on sun-exposed slopes in the afternoon. 

Steer clear of cornices from above and below.

The snow surface consists of a melt-freeze crust on all aspects of the mountain top. Only high alpine slopes above 2100 m and due North may still hold some softer, dryer snow. With a limited freeze overnight and rising freezing levels by Thursday afternoon, this crust may break down quickly with mostly wet snow surfaces. There are no layers of concern in the snowpack, which has been melting and settling over the past week. Lower elevations have mostly beenisothermaland melting away rapidly.

Large cornices loom along many ridgelines. They are weak and very unpredictable.

There have been no recent avalanche reports since last Saturday. 

Last weekend, reports of natural loose wet avalanches size 2-3 on solar aspects continued. Explosive work produced size 2-3.5 wet slab avalanches, failing on crusts in the upper snowpack and gouging to the ground as they ran to near valley bottom.

As the weather pattern changes and the temperatures start to fall, a decline in natural avalanche activity is likely. However, solar slopes and weak cornices remain suspect when the sun is shining. It can really pack a punch this time of year, even for short periods of time.
