GENERAL AVALANCHE ADVISORY

Warm temperatures and sunshine could create shallow loose snow sluffs and will increase the potential for wet slides to occur on very steep slopes. At all elevations the hazard will be LOW during the morning hours while snow surfaces remain hard and frozen and will increase to MODERATE after significant softening of the snow surface has occurred. Human triggered wet slides are possbile on very steep slopes after snow surfaces soften.
