Connelly Brown (CB) from Wallowa Alpine Huts just sent us a field report from a recent Guides Skills Course held up in their Norway Basin camp.
Like much of the Northwest, the Wallowas has seen below normal snowfall numbers thus far this season. That said, the Norway Basin Camp is, once again, proving to be one of the snowiest places in the state with a snowpack of five to seven feet (160-220cm)!
CB sent us the following Southern Wallowas snowpack summary and photos from their Guides Course. He also mentioned they still have a few dates open for trips to Norway Basin. The bottom line in the snowpack report is that stability has improved considerably, trail breaking is easy, and the skiing is very fun right now.
You can read more beta on the Wallowa’s snowpack at the new Wallowa Avalanche Center website www.wallowaavalanchecenter.org. The new center has a great forum, routine snowpack updates, and great weather links. They could also use your financial support! Check ’em out.
