Bottom Line: The one to three inches of new snow last night provides fresh ammunition for moderate westerly winds to build fresh drifts and increase the size of already massive cornices. Without more significant new snow or wind loading avalanches failing on deeply buried weak layers are unlikely. Minimize your exposure to wind loaded slopes with high consequence runouts, assess the snowpack and always employ safe travel protocols when in avalanche terrain.

  • These are dangerous days if you are a snowperson out recreating in the backcountry. Make sure to travel one at a time and watch out for slopes above 30 degrees. Photo: Snowy McSnowerton

  • We hiked in to put up the Flanders weather station on 9/25 and found a spotty distribution of 4-6" of snow above 8,000'. Photo: GNFAC

  • Last weekend (9/23) there was about 14 inches of snow at 9,000'. Sun and warm temperatures created wet snow avalanches on slopes that face the sun. These small slides can be hazardous if they push you into the wrong terrain. Photo: Z. Drobnik
