Snowpack Observations

Details

No signs of recent avalanches or instability in the Old Ski Bowl. Wet and heavy snow has bonded well to the old snow surface. Very little boot or ski penetration and smooth and uniform snow surfaces above treeline. Rain on snow below 7,500ft during the last storm melted snow and exposed more bare ground. A mix of rain and snow occurred up to about 11,000ft. Lots of falling rime ice observed in the Old Ski Bowl and in Avalanche Gulch.
