AVALANCHES:

WEATHER: Blustery recirculating winds BTL. Looked to be westerly and strong near treeline. Mostly Clouldy sky and maybe four snow flakes fell from the sky.

SNOWPACK: At all elevations the snowpack was 50/50 supportive to boots and most always supportive to skis. Last nights refreeze was about 5-6″. Snow surfaces didn’t heat up much today with the cooler temps and winds. Still, if your boot packing and want to stay on the surface, its best to crawl like a baby and distribute your weight.
