Snowpack Summary and General Conditions
Spring conditions are in effect. With no recent snow, and a solid freeze overnight, natural and human triggered avalanches are unlikely. Nevertheless, as the day heats up, remain aware of signs of instability such as rollerballs, pinwheels, and sloppy wet snow. Stay off of and out from under steep slopes when these signs are present.
