Hatcher Pass Avalanche Forecast
Today the avalanche danger is low. Natural and human triggered avalanches are unlikely.
Expect a little bit of everything when it comes to riding conditions. North aspects have cold low density snow and southerly aspects will stout crusts that will soften in the afternoon. Choose your aspect wisely and you could have a great day out in the mountains.
Remember low danger doesn’t mean no danger.
No recent avalanches have been reported or observed this week.
With warm temperatures during the day small loose wet avalanches are possible in isolated areas at lower and mid elevations on south aspects. These avalanches will be found on slopes 35 degrees and steeper. Timing will be important to avoid triggering or being caught in a wet loose avalanche.
Over the last few days temperatures have peaked around 2pm at all weather stations. Pay attention to temperatures to see how well southerly aspects are freezing/refreezing. On April 11th Marmot weather station reached a high of 41ºF at 4pm. All weather stations in the forecast zone are achieving freezing temps at night time.
Here are a few things to remember if you decide to travel in the mountains today.
