    Snowpack Discussion

    Up to 30 cm of settling storm snow sits over old snow surfaces, and a crust on sun affected slopes. On north facing slopes near ridgelines, deeper deposits of snow can be found - while south facing slopes may hold hard, wind pressed surfaces or a crust.

    Below treeline elevations have minimal snow cover, if any at all. Expect challenging travel conditions with hazards like rocks, stumps and open creeks. Check out this MIN from Mt Price for a great summary of snow conditions.

    Avalanche Activity

    On Thursday, reactivity to human triggers was reported near ridgelines within the new storm snow. Earlier in the weak cornice falls triggered slabs on the slopes below, on north facing alpine slopes.
