Recent Weather

A ½ inch of water fell Thursday with the freezing line climbing near 1000 feet. Moderate northeast winds accompanied. A few small avalanches occurred on steep southwest slopes above tree line. We now have a couple inches of refrozen snow at sea level increasing to 3 feet of dry snow above 2000 feet. Temperatures have dropped as skies have cleared and winds have shifted northerly.

Expect dry cold weather to continue through next week. North winds should slowly come down this weekend. Isolated wind slab avalanches may occur above tree line. Otherwise, the avalanche hazard should continue to decrease as time allows further snow pack bonding.
