General Avalanche Advisory
At the mid and upper elevations, skiers and riders could trigger small to large persistent slab avalanches in steep terrain. Large triggers, such as snowmobiles, may be more likely to initiate one of these slides. Evaluate the snowpack carefully, and don’t let previous tracks fool you into thinking that a slope is safe. The shallow snowpack is mostly stable at the lower elevations.

DESCRIPTION
Backcountry travelers may be able to trigger persistent slab avalanches up to 30 inches in depth on steep slopes above 7,500 feet. These slabs reside above faceted snow and crusts that formed during the dry period in November.
