Christmas Day snowpit and observations

Head's up for all users! Forest Service personnel found extremely weak snow off the groomed road near Sonora Pass.  Depending on how much new snow falls Sunday night and Monday, be advised that avalanche conditions could be dangerous on steep, north facing slopes.

The snowpack is weak and if a slide is triggered, the avalanche could take out the entire snowpack and run long distances through rocks and other obstacles.

Expect updates on Monday Dec. 28 2020.
