AVALANCHE DANGER MORNING AFTERNOON
GENERAL AVALANCHE ADVISORY
At the upper elevations, backcountry travelers venturing into steep, avalanche-prone terrain could trigger pockets of wind slab. As the day warms, these slabs could become more susceptible to failure, and the chance for shallow wet loose slides will also develop. Monitor temperatures and the effect of the sun, and evaluate the snowpack and terrain carefully. The snowpack is mostly stable at the mid elevations, and snow depths at the lower elevations are insufficient for avalanche activity.
In high elevation terrain where snowfall persisted from the beginning of the month, recently developed pockets of wind slab lie upon firm crusts. Skiers and riders could trigger these slabs to depths of 6 to 18 inches in steep, wind-loaded terrain.
