Recent Weather

We received 1 1/2 inches of water Monday with the freezing line climbing near 1000 feet. This translated into over a foot of snow above 1500 feet. Strong east wind loaded western slopes. Some avalanche activity occurred during the storm. Dry calm weather since has allowed the snowpack to adjust and the hazard to decrease.

Expect mostly dry cold weather through the weekend. North wind may move the avalanche hazard towards southern slopes. Backcountry users should be wary of isolated wind slabs on leeward slopes. The next significant precipitation is expected next week. The avalanche hazard should continue to decrease until then.
