Snowpack Update - Jan 19 2023
STATE OF THE SNOWPACK UPDATE FOR WHITEWATER SKI RESORT
Kutetl, Whitewater Ski Resort Backcountry
FAT & LOW ANGLE
That's probably going to be the theme for the season. We are avoiding shallow snowpacks, especially those over rocky/unsupported terrain, where these layers are closer to the surface and easier to trigger. There is still good riding out there in low-angle terrain! It looks like hopefully some more fresh snow in the forecast.
