Recent Weather

We received 8 inches of water in December with the freezing line fluctuating between sea level and our local peaks. We now have a couple inches of refrozen slush at sea level and 4 feet of snow at 1500 feet. Wind was mostly from the east, though we have also seen wind from the south, west, and most recently north. Avalanche activity has been limited to small storm related events. Current calm, clear conditions have promoted stability as well as created a temperature inversion.

Expect calm, clear conditions to continue through this week and probably next week. Avalanches are not expected, though caution should be used on steep wind loaded slopes above tree line.
