No significant avalanche concerns below about 6600 feet in elevation (top of Carbonate)...yet. There are some concerning layers in the upper part of this very thin snowpack, but they don't have a slab on top of them yet.
Minimal new snow from this storm - warm temps made it blend in with the crust at the snow surface. Minimal snow available for transport.
10-30cm (4-12") snowpack depth from 5300-6600' elevation. Below about 6000', snow was moist/damp/wet on all aspects. From 6000-6600', the upper crusts and facets were dry on E-NE aspects, moist/wet on SE-S-SW-W. NW and N aspects were not observed above about 6000'.
No problems now below 6600' because there is no slab above the crusts and facets. There could be a persistent slab problem above 6000' when we get more snow.
I planned to avoid any wind-loaded terrain steeper than 35*. I did not encounter any wind-loaded terrain below 6600'. There were some very isolated wind loaded slopes above 7000' in Croy Canyon.Close
