Conditions Summary

A Special Weather Statement has been issued in effect Sunday and Monday bringing warm temperatures and the potential for 12″ of new snow to Hatcher Pass. Southerly winds are forecasted to increase throughout the storm. Any significant precipitation combined with warm temperatures and moderate wind will increase the avalanche hazard at all elevations, on all aspects through Monday. If you choose to venture from your quarantine at home, we highly recommend cautious route finding and conservative decision making. This storm could tip the balance with natural avalanches failing deep in the snowpack in the dormant yet highly consequential deep persistent slab layer. Stay safe!

 

Above: 0.92″ of snow water equivalent will produce approximately 12″ of snow
