    Snowpack Discussion

    Up to 40 cm of recent snow can be found at upper elevations and is settling rapidly with intense solar radiation and warm temperatures. Previous southwest wind formed slabs on lee features in the alpine.

    The recent snow sits above a crust in most areas. The exception is on northerly aspects above 2200 m where it overlies dry snow.Expect difficult travel at lower elevations with thin snow coverage.

    Avalanche Activity

    Numerous natural and rider triggered storm/wind slab avalanches up to size 2 were reported on all aspects in the alpine on Wednesday.
