GENERAL AVALANCHE ADVISORY

Temperatures have been near or above freezing for an extended period. This has created extensive areas of weak, wet unconsolidated snow. The potential for wet slides to occur will increase as the day warms. Wet loose and wet slab avalanches are possible in cliff areas and in steep terrain at all elevations. Once initiated these wet slides can increase in size. Stay off and out from under steep slopes in areas where snow surfaces are wet and unconsolidated.
