Recent Weather

We have received 1 ½ inches of water so far today. The freezing line has climbed, bringing mostly rain to sea level. The upper start zones, however, have seen mostly snow, while strong winds loaded western aspects.

Expect more precipitation, heavy at times, with strong to extreme east wind. The freezing line will probably climb to our local peaks overnight into Thursday. This may cause our first large avalanche cycle of the season. Caution is advised for the highway, particularly at 5 and 5 ½ mile. Backcountry users should avoid wind loaded slopes at tree line and above, as well as large paths in general.
