Recent storm snow may still need time to stabilize and bond to underlying surfaces. Don't be lured by clearing skies into big terrain too quickly.

Terrain and Travel Advice

  • Closely monitor how the new snow is bonding to the crust.
  • The new snow may require another day to settle and stabilize.
  • Expect shallow snow cover that barely covers ground roughness.

New snow may not be bonding rapidly to the widespread crust below, especially at higher elevations.

Snowpack Summary

Roughly 30 cm of recent snowfall has buried a widespread, thick crust at higher elevations. Strom snow may not bond right away to the underlying crust.

Conditions remain rugged at lower elevations with a shallow snowpack and a mix of wet snow and crusts.
