Recent Avalanche Activity

Recent Weather

Light new snow has slowly accumulated this week, with winds loading southwest aspects. We now have 2 feet at 1500 feet, and 3 feet at 2000 feet. No avalanche activity has been observed, though observations have been limited by weather.

Expect a ½ inch of water today with more northeast wind. Temperatures may be a little warmer, though precipitation should translate to 6 inches of snow above 500 feet. The avalanche hazard may increase if we get more snow than expected. Otherwise, weather should dry out this weekend, allowing the avalanche hazard to decrease.
