BACKCOUNTRY AVALANCHE HAZARD
Above Tree Line: MODERATE Be wary of cornices and glide cracks.
Tree Line: LOW
Below Tree Line: LOW
Heavy rain to the peaks tested our shallow snow pack once again. A day of dry weather has allowed the snow to drain and adjust, bringing the avalanche hazard down. We may see some light scattered snow showers, but the avalanche hazard should continue to decrease into next week.
