Today is our last regular avalanche forecast but we will continue posting observations and avalanches. Thanks for a great season!
The 8400' Tony Grove Snotel reports 32°F this morning, and there is 69 inches of total snow at the site, containing 76% of normal SWE. South winds are currently blowing around 20 mph at the 9700' CSI Logan Peak weather station with gusts in the upper 20's. Last week's powder riding conditions are a thing of the past as seasonal temperatures took their toll over the weekend.
In addition to providing a few bonus powder days, last week's wet weather (4.9" SWE total since Monday) moved us a bit closer to the average for the season.
Multiple soft slab and wind slab, natural and human-triggered avalanches were reported Friday and Saturday. All occurred above 9000' on north through east facing slopes and ranged in width from 100' to 1000' wide.
