Very little to discuss in terms of avalanche hazard today.
Ridgetop winds were moving faceted snow off peaks and ridges and down into Near Treeline terrain throughout the day.
Mostly sunny skies today with high temperatures above freezing at 10,000′.
Wind was moderate out of the Southwest with stronger gusts. Snow transport was evident along ridgelines throughout the day.
No precip. today.
Height of snow and surface form by elevation in Virginia Creek:
BTL: HS 0 – 60cm, Soft faceted snow in shaded areas. Melt-freeze crusts of various hardness and thickness on sun exposed slopes.
NTL: HS 0 – 90cm, Wind board / winds crusts dominate in exposed areas. Melt Freeze crusts are present on exposed E and SE aspects. S and SW facing slopes are mostly snow free. Near surface facets are present around the wind and melt-freeze crusts. Loose blowing facets are scattered and drifted across Near Treeline bowls and leeward terrain features.
ATL: HS 0 – 90cm, Wind deposited or wind eroded snow. The snowpack below the wind-packed surface is faceted top to bottom.
