Current Conditions

Talk about the gift that keeps giving! Yesterday's storm came in fast and furious, quickly stacking up over a foot of snow. Trial Lake wins the overachiever award once again, registering 20" of new snow. Fortunately, winds have been pretty well behaved and currently clock in from the west and northwest in the teens and mid 20's. Under partly cloudy skies, temperatures are near zero. Epically deep riding and turning conditions await those who cash in their sick day vouchers today

 

Avalanche Danger

At and above treeline in the wind zone, you'll find a CONSIDERABLE avalanche danger. Human triggered avalanches are LIKELY on all steep wind drifted slopes.

A MODERATE avalanche danger is found in mid elevation terrain and human triggered avalanches are possible on steep slopes with recent deposits of wind drifted snow.

Wind sheltered slopes in mid and lower elevations offer LOW avalanche danger.
