JUNE 1, 2012
The heavy snows ending May 28th  have rapidly settled to six inches at 9,500 feet but depths and drifts at higher elevations are as deep as four feet. Steep, avalanche -prone slopes continue to have  widespread point releases and sloughing with warm temperatures and sunshine. Any steep slopes that have not had recent activity should be avoided if the snow has softened. Routes with eastern exposures become soft as early as six A.M.
