The CRH avalanche season is officially over. While there is no snow below 1500 feet, much snow still exists in the upper mountains. Backcountry users should still use caution around cornices, glide cracks, and steep loaded unsupported slopes, especially during heavy rain or strong sunshine. The CRH avalanche season will begin again in December.
