Finally, a natural disaster with a low probability of hitting my house.

Have your beacon ready and that air bag. So the St. Bernard can find you in the snow. Looks like all of your skiing area are under alert.

Just a bit south the snow level shot up from 2500ft to 5000ft from Saturday to today. Not sure if the same thing happened in Washington. It's a good day to stay home here.

Another dangerous weekend for the PNW backcountry. Monday in the Oregon Cascades temps skyrocketed forming a solid layer of crust below 5000ft. There's going to be a predicted 20 - 35" of fresh snow on top of that layer by Saturday. Avoid open slopes with angles above 35 degrees and all wind loaded slopes.

Here's a video of avy control near the pass.

The second to last photo in this trip report is jaw dropping. I've been to that exact spot dozens of times in winter.
