Below 3-5" of new snow there is a supportable frozen crust on top of a wet snowpack on most slopes. Avalanches are mostly confined to the new snow on top of this crust (wet loose, dry loose, wind slabs). However, where the snowpack did not freeze below the new snow, or when this crust melts, deeper wet slides are possible. Photo: GNFAC

This wet avalanche crossed the Dudley Creek trail and took out a portion of a fence on private land. It barely missed hitting the house. Photo: J. Cummins

Near Cooke City we found a generally stable snowpack, similar to the rest of the advisory area. For the next few days avalanches will be confined to new snow that falls. These slides can be dry or wet loose slides, or fresh wind slabs. Carefully assess the stability of the new snow before riding steep terrain. Photo: GNFAC

Two pits on the west side of Saddle peak. They were dug relatively close to each other, but subtle changes in aspect and elevation resulted in very different conditions. North-facing slopes remain cold and dry for now, while anything that is in the sun is transitioning to a springtime snowpack. Photo: GNFAC
