Mountain Weather Forecast for Today
Cloud cover is forecast to increase during the day
General Avalanche AdvisoryAt the mid and upper elevations a buried layer of faceted snow that formed in mid-November persists and is still weak. In steep terrain humans could trigger slab avalanches on this problem layer. Although it remains possible for the weight of a single person to trigger an avalanche on this layer; larger triggers, such as snowmobiles, may be more likely to initiate one of these slides. A careful evaluation of terrain and this persistent weak layer is warranted. Tracks on a slope should not be interpreted as an indication of stability. Avalanches are unlikely below an elevation of 8,000 feet.
Today's Avalanche Problems
DESCRIPTIONSkiers and riders could trigger persistent slab avalanches up to two feet deep in steep terrain above an elevation of 8,000 feet.
