After a massive 8-10ft snow dump between January 19th-Feb 5th, warm weather brought light-moderate rain/snow mix up to 1,500ft from Feb. 6th-13th. Since then, temperatures dropped into the teens and a few inches of new snow fell on top of the re-frozen snowpack.
Looking ahead, expect light snow showers above 1,500ft Wednesday, followed by another 1.2″ SWE Thursday. This will mean 1-3 feet of new snowfall above the rain line this week. Snow levels Thursday will be near 500ft. South winds will be moderate to strong. Cooler temperatures are likely for the weekend with a possible storm coming in on Saturday.

Do a beacon check with your partners at the trailhead to ensure everyone is beeping and familiar with their equipment. Do a rescue practice / beacon practice at home. ALWAYS wear a beacon, shovel, and probe, and KNOW HOW TO USE THEM!
