 BACKCOUNTRY AVALANCHE HAZARD

Increasing daylight has brought warm daytime temperatures. We’ve seen some scattered showers but mostly dry weather. The snowpack is quickly disappearing from sea level while a variable 2 feet exists at 1500 feet. Expect similar weather to continue through next week. Avalanche activity is not expected, though backcountry users should use caution around steep sun baked slopes above tree line.
