    Snowpack Discussion

    Anywhere from 2 to 10 cm of snow accumulated on Saturday night above 1600 m with associated southwest wind. This may have produced small wind slabs in lee terrain features near ridgetop. The snow accumulated onto a hard melt-freeze crust. This crust is the snow surface below 1600 m.

    The remainder of the snowpack is strong.

    Avalanche Activity

    A few small loose wet avalanches were observed on Friday. Looking forward, similar small wet avalanches may be possible with daytime warming. Riders could also find isolated wind slabs in steep shaded features at the mountain tops.
