Weather and Snow
Current Conditions: Daytime high temperatures creep upward each day. Thursday highs reached up to around 50. Overnight lows were around freezing. The snow surface should be frozen solid this morning.
Mountain Weather: We'll see mostly clear skies today with temperatures into the low 50s at many locations. Wind from the southwest will increase into the moderate speed category. A minor disturbance will move through tonight with the slightest chance of precipitation. Saturday and Sunday look mostly clear with warm temperatures and slightly breezy wind from the south.
Recent Avalanches
There has been no significant avalanche activity for a few weeks now.
Avalanche Problem #1
Normal Caution
Avalanche conditions are about as quiet as they get. There is very little threat of getting caught in an avalanche right now. My only advise is to avoid being on or below really steep slopes later in the day as the snow becomes overly wet and sloppy. Also stay out of steep walled gullies and ravines.
