    Snowpack Discussion

    The snowpack remains generally shallow, with multiple hazards just below the snow surface. Expect to find crusty snow conditions at lower elevations and heavily wind-affected surfaces at higher elevations.

    A weak layer of faceted snow may be present at the base of the snowpack.

    The height of snow at treeline is approximately 30 to 50 cm.

    Avalanche Activity

    No new avalanches have been reported, but observations are very limited at this time of year.
