Much shallower snowpack in this area than in most of the Sawatch zone.
Weak snowpack, however the lack of slab in the snowpack promote good stability.
Clouds quickly moved in from the south. Winds increased out of the SW and were strong enough to move surface snow around. Temperatures remained cool. Snow started to fall around 3:00 pm and precipitation intensity has increased ever since.
