    Snowpack Discussion

    Approximately 10 to 30 cm of recent snow may sit overtop a widespread thick crust. New snow may not be bonding well with the underlying crust. Below the crust the snowpack is generally well consolidated.

    Overall, the snow depth remains relatively shallow, creating challenging travel conditions and numerous hazards at or just below the snow surface across all elevations.

    Avalanche Activity

    No new avalanches have been reported. However, observations have been minimal throughout the early winter.

    If you're heading out in the backcountry, please consider sharing any observations on the Mountain Information Network
