Overall natural avalanches are on West facing gullies and loading zones on the
North half of the area. These avalanches appear to be relatively shallow from
recent wind loaded slopes that may have got rained on. They ran down as far as
the top of lower angled slopes. (See below for photos of many of the avalanches
As far as the rest of the area little to no snow at lower elevations with
shallow snowpack up high. Winds over the past week have been 20-30 mph out of
the NE which has kept many slopes bare at higher elevations.
