Avalanche Bulletin

Issued at: Wed Apr 17, 2024 16:00 PST
Valid Until Thu Apr 18, 2024 16:00 PST

Low danger doesn't mean no danger.
Watch for changing snow and wet loose avalanches on steep, sun-exposed slopes.

Terrain and Travel Advice:
  • Watch for unstable snow on specific terrain features, especially when the snow is moist or wet.
  • Use caution above cliffs and terrain traps where even small avalanches may have severe consequences.
  • When a thick, melt-freeze surface crust is present, avalanche activity is unlikely.
Wet Loose

Avalanches are most likely on steep, sun-affected slopes with sunshine and rising temperatures.

Avalanche Summary

No recent avalanche reports by 4 pm on Wednesday. Sunshine and rising temperatures may weaken the surface snow and initiate small wet loose avalanches on southerly-facing slopes. Use caution on north-facing slopes in the alpine as they may host pockets of wind slab.

If you head into the backcountry, please submit any observations or photos to the Mountain Information Network, observations are limited in the spring.

Snowpack Summary

Watch for moist, unstable snow on southerly slopes with sun and warm temperatures. Wind-affected dry snow may exist only on high north-facing alpine slopes. Where a crust exists expect limited avalanche activity.

Below treeline elevations have minimal snow cover if any at all. Expect challenging travel conditions with hazards like rocks, stumps, and open creeks.

Weather Summary

Wednesday Night

Clear with a few lingering clouds. 20-30 km/h northeast ridgetop wind. Treeline temperatures near +3°C. Freezing levels 1400 m.

Thursday

Sunny with few clouds. 15-30 km/h northeast ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature +5°C. Freezing level near 1700 m.

Friday

Sunny. 25 km/h southeast ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature +6°C. Freezing level near 1900 m.

Saturday

Cloudy with new snow/ rain 5 to 15 mm. 40-50 km/h southwest ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature +6°C. Freezing level 2000 m.

More details can be found in the Mountain Weather Forecast.

Confidence: moderate
We have a good understanding of the snowpack structure and confidence in the weather forecast
Uncertainty is due to the limited number of field observations.

Wet loose avalanches are possible on steep sun-exposed slopes. Give cornices a wide berth from above and below.
Where a thick surface crust exists avalanche activity will be unlikely.

Terrain and Travel Advice:
  • Watch for unstable snow on specific terrain features, especially when the snow is moist or wet.
  • Pay attention to cornices and give them a wide berth when traveling on or below ridges.
  • Be careful with wind slabs, especially in steep, unsupported and/or convex terrain features.
Wet Loose

Daytime warming and sunshine may affect the snowpack. Moist snow surfaces, snowballing and wet loose avalanches are indicators of a weakening snowpack.

Avalanche Summary

No recent avalanche reports by 4 pm on Wednesday. Sunshine and rising temperatures may weaken the surface snow and initiate small wet loose avalanches on southerly-facing slopes. Use caution on north-facing slopes in the alpine as they may host pockets of wind slab.

If you head into the backcountry, please submit any observations or photos to the Mountain Information Network, observations are limited in the spring.

Snowpack Summary

A widespread surface crust likely exists at all elevations, except on high north-facing slopes where pockets of wind affected dry snow exist above 2000 m. Watch for moist, unstable snow on southerly slopes with sun and warm temperatures.

Below treeline elevations have minimal snow cover if any at all. Expect challenging travel conditions with hazards like rocks, stumps and open creeks.

Weather Summary

Wednesday Night

Clear with a few lingering clouds. 20-30 km/h north ridgetop wind. Treeline temperatures near -6°C. Freezing valley bottom.

Thursday

Sunny. 15-20 km/h northeast ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature -2°C. Freezing level near 1600 m.

Friday

Sunny. 25 km/h southeast ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature +1°C. Freezing level near 1900 m.

Saturday

Cloudy with new snow/ rain 3 to 10 mm. 10-15 km/h southeast ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature +2°C. Freezing level 2100 m.

More details can be found in the Mountain Weather Forecast.

Confidence: high
Uncertainty is due to the timing or intensity of solar radiation and its effect on the snowpack.

Terrain and Travel Advice:
  • Avoid sun exposed slopes when the solar radiation is strong, especially if snow is moist or wet
  • Pay attention to cornices and give them a wide berth when traveling on or below ridges.
  • Watch for wind-loaded pockets especially around ridgecrest and in extreme terrain.
Wet Loose

Daytime warming and sunshine may affect the snowpack. Moist snow surfaces, snowballing and wet loose avalanches are indicators of a weakening snowpack.

Avalanche Summary

No recent avalanche reports by 4 pm on Wednesday. Sunshine and rising temperatures may weaken the surface snow and initiate small wet loose avalanches on southerly-facing slopes. Use caution on north-facing slopes in the alpine as they may host pockets of wind slab.

If you head into the backcountry, please submit any observations or photos to the Mountain Information Network.

Snowpack Summary

Up to 20 cm of new snow overlies the old snow surfaces, but may only exist on high north slopes after Wednesday's sunshine. The new snow sits above a widespread crust at all elevations besides the high north-facing slopes where small pockets of wind-affected dry snow exist.

Watch for moist, unstable snow on southerly slopes with sun and warm temperatures.

Below treeline elevations have minimal snow cover. Expect challenging travel conditions with hazards like rocks, stumps and open creeks.

Weather Summary

Wednesday Night

Clear. 10-25 km/h north ridgetop wind. Treeline temperatures near -1°C. Freezing level 1100 m.

Thursday

Sunny. 30-40 km/h northerly ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature +2°C. Freezing level near 1600 m.

Friday

Sunny. 20-30 km/h southeast ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature +5°C. Freezing level near 1900 m.

Saturday

Cloudy with rain 5 to 15 mm. 20-35 km/h southeast ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature +7°C. Freezing level 2200 m.
