Our current weather pattern will be a powerful draw to the backcountry enthusiast as we enter the weekend. It remains important to consider the complex nature of our snowpack if you decide to venture into the backcountry. Our persistent slab problem fits squarely into the category of “low likelihood and high consequence”, making it particularly hard to manage and predict. Variable and challenging surface conditions are also worth considering when evaluating your trip options today.
