The warm temperatures over the last week settled the snowpack quite a bit.† Below about 9,500 feet the surface is fairly supportable before things start to soften with daytime heating.† Once you get up around 10,000í feet you can find some weaker, recrystalized snow on the surface and within the shallow snowpack.† However, this snow has gained some strength over the week and poses no threat of avalanching at the current time.† We will continue to monitor the snowpack as with the right weather conditions the surface could become weak before the next storm producing a sugary layer that new snow could fail on.
After the closed low moves through on Friday, the flow will shift to the northwest for the weekend.†
With mundane avalanche conditions and no significant weather to talk about, we probably wonít update this advisory until conditions change which could be a good number of days.
