Insufficient observations exist to reliably rate the avalanche danger. Expect shallow snow cover with thinly buried rocks and trees just beneath the surface. Avalanche danger often concentrates in gullies and other deposition areas, where windslabs may bond poorly to a weak underlying base. Deeper snow usually exists at higher elevations.

Another small storm is forecast to bring snow to the upper elevations during the early part of the week of October 8-14, with clearing skies and continued cool temperatures later in the week.
Several autumn snow storms have deposited the base of this winter's snowpack at high elevations in the Rockies. Expect this snow to remain on all aspects above 2500m, with pockets of wind slab and fragile cornices starting to appear on ridge crests and leeward areas. Be wary of unstable snow on steep, high elevation glaciers or gullies.
No avalanche activity has been reported.
