Mt Hood - High Avy forecast 2/28
« on: 02/28/17, 12:37 PM »

Almost 30" in the last 24h and still pounding. WSW winds @ 7K: a steady 50-60 mph. Didn't see an NWAC update on here today, so I thought I would post. NWS is predicting another 3-5 overnight, but I'm guessing it could end up being much more when all is said and done.

Be smart and be safe out there.

We were up lift skiing on Mt. Hood Monday night when it was really coming down, and it was very low density snow.  Amazing skiing conditions, but with another storm coming in Friday looking to be of the warmer/denser variety, it's probably going to be loaded up for high danger this weekend too.

Good point DG. Lots of snow in the forecast starting Friday.

Skied at MHM on Wednesday. Snow was very deep, but was seriously wind affected. Spent most of the morning in heather and PR. Lots of fracturing on very steep convex features in A. Mag and around God's before it got tracked up. Nothing ran.
