The CRH avalanche season is over. Our spring shed brought a couple cornice and glide crack failures, as well as a few small loose snow avalanches. Activity has since slowed to a standstill, and not enough snow remains to affect the highway. Expect the rest of the snowpack to melt in place, though backcountry users should use caution in the upper mountains. The CRH avalanche season will resume in December.
