Avalanche risk for May 22, 2019: Considerable

Dangerous avalanche conditions. Careful snowpack evaluation, cautious route-finding and conservative decision-making essential. Natural avalanches possible; human-triggered avalanches likely.

A summer ski destination!

Need to Know

Parking is $5 at the lot, this place gets busy (heavily travelled), and storms roll in pretty quickly, so be prepared.

Description

Conditions vary from month to month, and from year to year. If you're expecting amazing turns all year round, this isn't your place. If you just want to get some turns in over the summer, this is it. It can be pretty manky, dirty and difficult in general, but that's half the fun!

There is snow here all year round (it got pretty thin, especially that bad year - yeah, you remember that year). There was still snow, but not too much during that bad year. Enough to slide on though.
