The last avalanche forecast for the 2019-2020 season posted on May 3rd. Thank you to everyone who supported the avalanche center this past season with volunteer hours, donations, and/or avalanche, snowpack, and weather observations. These contributions are crucial to avalanche center operations.
Week in Review for 11/5/2017 - 11/11/2017
Continuing to build with significant depth bias towards northern half of the Sierra Crest. Areas of 1 to 2 foot depth with supportable snowpack begin to emerge. Still thin cover elsewhere within the forecast area. No signs of problematic weak layers.
- High pressure early in the week
- Storm cycle mid/late week - Snow level around 7,500'-8,000'
- Gale force SW winds during storm
