SST to the base of North Walton Peak
The snowpack across the northern mountains is thin, and the avalanche danger remains Low (Level 1). Sunny slopes are trending back to bare ground, while shadier slopes are only holding continuous snow cover in more protected terrain features. Under these conditions, most slopes are safe from avalanches, and only a few isolated features need your attention.
Higher elevation slopes near and above treeline facing north to northeast are the remaining spots where you can trigger a small avalanche. You can find a stiffer slab resting above weaker snow grains from earlier in the season on these aspects. Even with a snowpack 1 to 2 feet deep, there remains a chance that any avalanche you trigger can do you harm. With thin snow coverage in the middle and lower parts of the path, taking even a small ride will likely bash you off of rocks and stumps below.
