    Snowpack Discussion

    Warm sunny weather will melt and weaken surface snow everywhere except for north-facing slopes above roughly 2400 m. Surface melting will occur rapidly on sun-exposed slopes.

    Weak layers deeper in the snowpack have shown signs of strengthening and are no longer a concern.

    Avalanche Activity

    There have been no new avalanches reported over the past few days.

    Looking forward, we expect wet loose avalanches as skies clear and the freezing level rises. Small wind slabs may still be possible along ridgetops.
