Teton Area avalanche hazard rating for 11/18/2018

Avalanche danger scale ratings


The snowpack is mostly stable above 8,500 feet. Up there, backcountry travelers might be able to trigger an isolated pocket of shallow soft slab or loose snow sluff in very steep, avalanche prone terrain. As the day warms, the chance for loose slides involving yesterday’s snowfall will increase on sunlit aspects. Below 8,500 feet, snow depths are insufficient for avalanche activity.
