Recent Weather

Scattered snow showers through the night left a trace of cold snow. We received up to 10 inches of snow on Thursday with moderate east winds loading western aspects with possibly twice as much. Steady easterly winds have redistributed storm snow. Expect scoured ridgelines and pockets of deep wind slab on leeward slopes. Backcountry users should use caution on western aspects.

Small shortwaves could linger into today bringing scattered snow showers but likely little to no accumulation. Expect clearing skies and temperatures to drop as a high pressure moves into the area this weekend. As the ridge continues to build through Sunday, a low pressure is expected to move across the North Pacific, increasing the pressure gradient. Strong northerly outflow winds are expected by Sunday afternoon.
