    Snowpack Discussion

    A dusting of new snow falls over widespread crusty surfaces on all but high north-facing alpine terrain, where snow is dry and likely wind affected. There are no deeper concerns at this time.

    Avalanche Activity

    A handful of small (size 1) skier-triggered storm and wind slab avalanches up to 30 cm deep were reported in the alpine on Monday. Solar-triggered loose wet avalanches were observed up to size 2 in steep alpine terrain.

    Last week, cornice failures were notably not propagating any weak layers on slopes below but there was one report of an anomalous remotely skier-triggered size 2 failing on moist snow below a recently buried crust.
