Snowpack Observations


Ash Creek Butte has 2-3 feet of snow in the bowl, with about 4-6 in of boot penetration on  the snow surface. Melt-freeze cycles have not yet begun to transfer the snow to corn conditions. Road to Ash Creek Butte is mostly covered in snow, groomed, and very icy in places. There are a few places where the road is exposed to dirt up to 100 feet. Despite warm soft conditions, no signs of wet loose instabilities were observed.

Brewer Creek Trailhead has 1-3 ft of snow. Access without a snowmobile is limited. Snow is still several miles out. See map.
