Route & General Observations

Foggy conditions made observations difficult. Some recent avalanche debris seen at Moose North, along the Hope Highway, and down by Devil’s Pass Trailhead. Over the past week we have had two significant systems move through the area with significant amounts of snow. Avalanches were seen from upper elevations as well as smaller avalanches at lower to mid elevation.
