Two more inches of lighter density snow overnight to cap the 5 to 7 inches from the past 36 hours. Excellent riding on moderate and low angle slopes in the dense snow that has fallen over the weekend. Steeper slopes still scratchy. Rain Crust up to 10 k, but the graupel and dense snow helped keep you riding in soft creamy turning conditions. At 0900 the April sun had not yet dampened the surface snow.
On steep slopes that either have and or retain cold snow, Loose Dry Avalanches will be an issue today.
On steep slopes on east, south, and west facing slopes the intense April solar will help initiate Wet Loose Avalanches today; and the slick crusts on all aspects will allow for these avalanches to entrain snow and build up large debris piles. In high consequence terrain this will be an issue of concern.
The forecast for a return on Tuesday and Wednesday to excessive daytime highs, and overnight lows above freezing, may send us back to Wet Slab Avalanche Problem concerns.
Slide for life potential is a distinct possibility on all steep slopes due to the slick crusts.
