The Avy Rose shows the forecasted danger by elevation and aspect.
It adds more detail about where you are likely to find the dangers mentioned in the forecast. The inner circle shows upper elevations (mountain top), the second circle is middle elevations, and the outer circle represents lower elevations.
Think of the Rose as a birds-eye view of a mountain, looking down from above. The rose allows our forecasters to visually show you which parts of the mountain they are most concerned about.
Two inches of water fell early last week with the freezing level above the peaks. This initiated our spring shed. Warm temperature have continued, as daylight increases. Some avalanche activity occurred.
Expect precipitation Sunday night into Thursday with the freezing line again above the peaks. Models suggest 3 inches of water. This will continue our meltdown. Backcountry users should be wary of cornices, glide cracks, and steep unsupported slopes. The main highway hazard sits at the smaller 5 mile path, on the town side of the loop road.
