Snowpack - Cooke City

Snowpack - Cooke City

As of Halloween day, the snowpack near Cooke City above 9000 ft is 2 ft deep on all aspects.  It is warm, moist and dense.....for now.  First and foremost, there is plenty of snow for avalanches.  Second, it looks like it could form a solid foundation for the snowpack; HOWEVER, a lot can change in the next month.  We'll have to wait and see how it evolves.  It could stay strong or it could become very weak.  Photo: GNFAC
