General Avalanche Advisory
A slight chance continues for large avalanches to be triggered in steep isolated areas that involve deeply buried weak layers of snow. As temperatures rise and potential rain weakens the snow surface, wet loose avalanche activity could release naturally this afternoon in steep terrain below 8500 feet. Roof slides will become possible this afternoon and evening.

DESCRIPTION

Deep persistent slab avalanches could be triggered to the ground with depths to six feet. Although the chance of such an event being human triggered is becoming unlikely, they could still occur in isolated areas, if a particularly weak spot on a slope is impacted by the weight of a snow machine and rider or by a large cornice drop.
