Join us on Wednesday December 5th to celebrate the coming of winter! Our 15th Annual Pray for Snow Party and Fundraiser is at The Cache with music from Two Headed Trout, pizza from Lucky Slice, beverages from Moab Brewery, and a raffle and silent auction if amazing donated items. Thanks for your support of avalanche awareness and education. We look forward to seeing you! Tickets available online: CLICK HERE.
Dangerous avalanche conditions exist on upper elevation slopes that held snow before the Thanksgiving storm. Human triggered persistent slab avalanches are likely. Much less danger and excellent powder conditions exist where is no old pre-Thanksgiving snow.
The Tony Grove Snotel at 8400' reports only an inch or two new snow in the last 24 hours. The station reports 28" of accumulation and 2.8" SWE since 11/28. It's 17º F and there's 39"of total snow, containing 118% of average SWE for the date. It's 10º F at the 9700' CSI Logan Peak weather station and a east wind is blowing around 20 mph.
It'll be mostly cloudy and snow is likely in the mountains again today, with 1 to 3 inches of accumulation possible. High temperatures at 8500' will be around 25º F, with 5 mph east-northeast wind. Snow showers are possible tonight and tomorrow, but not much accumulation is expected. It'll be cloudy tonight with calm winds and low temperatures around 9º F. Mostly cloudy again Monday, with light west winds and high temperatures around 21º F. High pressure will return once again early in the upcoming week, and the next storm looks to impact the Logan Zone later in the week.
No new avalanches were reported in the Logan Zone since a natural cycle at upper elevations on Thanksgiving weekend.
