    Snowpack Discussion

    Surface conditions are a mix of large surface hoar topping 10-20 cm of faceting storm snow in shaded, sheltered areas, sun crust on steep south and west-facing slopes, and wind effect in exposed terrain at treeline and above.

    A crust with sugary facets beneath it can be found just above the ground.

    Expect early-season conditions with a shallower-than-average snowpack. Coverage is reportedly poorest in the alpine and below treeline. At treeline, depths are between 60-100 cm.

    Avalanche Activity

    A few natural size two wind slab avalanches were reported last week at higher elevations. Little more is expected until it snows again.

    Observations are limited this time of year. Please consider filling out a MIN report if you do head out in the backcountry! 🙏
