    Snowpack Discussion

    The snow surface likely consists of a mix of hard melt-freeze crust and dry snow depending on aspect and elevation. Sun-exposed slopes may undergo daily melting and freezing whereas northerly alpine slopes could remain dry with potential slabs.

    The remainder of the snowpack is settled and strong.

    Limited snow cover remains below treeline.
