The avalanche danger is LOW this morning.  It will rise to MODERATE as unseasonably warm and sunny weather increases the threat of shallow wet avalanches and cornice falls.  Move towards colder aspects before the snow gets too mushy and don't linger below corniced slopes.

This morning the avalanche danger is LOW but will rise to MODERATE with sunshine and warming. Wet avalanche activity will increase through the day on sunny aspects. Avoid cornices and use caution on sunny slopes after they soften. Safer riding conditions and better snow quality exist on shady aspects.

This morning the avalanche danger is LOW but will rise to MODERATE. Sunshine and warming will contribute to wet avalanches and weakening cornices. Lingering wind slab instabilities exist at upper elevation. Evaluate wind loaded terrain, avoid cornices and stay off sunny slopes once they soften. Safer riding conditions and better snow quality exist on shady aspects at low and mid elevations.

Heavy, dense snow and moderate southwest winds formed sensitive storm slabs at mid/ upper elevations. Slabs will thicken through the day especially at upper elevations on leeward slopes. Avalanche danger could rise to CONSIDERABLE at mid-elevations as the day progresses if snowfall totals verify.  A human triggered avalanche is likely on slopes steeper than 35 degrees. Look for cracking in the snow surface as a sign of instability. Safer riding conditions exist in lower elevation, wind-sheltered terrain.

New snow and moderate southwest winds will develop shallow wind slabs by this evening at upper elevations on leeward slopes, overlapping with shallow wind slabs that formed yesterday. As snow depths increase, these slabs will thicken and become more widespread; look for cracking in the snow surface as a sign of instability. Generally safer but challenging riding conditions exist in wind-sheltered terrain, where a mix of surface crust or sheltered powder can be found.

Warming temperatures and sunshine will increase the avalanche danger to MODERATE.  Be cautious of small loose wet avalanches running from steep, sunlit faces and gullies.  Shaded aspects offer better stability and snow quality, but watch for isolated wind drifts at higher elevations and give massive cornices their due space.

Light snow and wind return to our area today.  The avalanche danger is LOW this morning but will rise to MODERATE if we receive more than 6" of new snow. Look for small pockets of new or wind drifted snow on all aspects. A surface crust on sunny aspects will inhibit bonding and act as a slippery bed surface. Stay alert for changing conditions and monitor new snow amounts. Continue to practice safe travel techniques.

The combination of yesterday's sunny warm weather and this morning's cold dry conditions has allowed the surface snowpack to gain strength. The avalanche danger is LOW. Watch for thin wind slabs on leeward aspects at upper elevations. Stay well away from cornices weakened during Saturday's warming. Continue to practice safe travel techniques.
