Quite weather and time have been helping to strengthen the upper snowpack, and we expect this trend to continue over the next two days before we see a significant change in pattern. However, now is not the time to become complacent. It remains important to track the state of the weak and complex underlying snowpack and be ready for a significant spike in avalanche danger when we see a significant new load.
In addition, the shallow and sporadic coverage continues to pose serious hazards to backcountry enthusiasts. Recent observations from across the range continue to highlight the shallow and obstacle-ridden conditions. Slow it down and move with caution. The sharks are everywhere, lurking just below the surface.
