Snowpack Observations

Details

Active rockfall and icefall off of the Redbanks formation in Avalanche Gulch was observed today. No signs of snowpack instability. Snow cover is getting very thin around Bunny Flat and below 8,000ft. Very calm winds and warm temperatures allowed snow surfaces to soften on south, southeast, and east aspects making for some good corn skiing.
