General Avalanche Advisory
At the upper elevations skiers and riders who venture onto steep terrain features could trigger soft slab avalanches and shallow loose snow sloughs. These shallow sloughs, which should only involve the recent new snow, may also release naturally on steep sunlit aspects. Even small slides can be dangerous in steep chutes and cliff areas. Grand Teton National Park is closed. Practice social distancing directives and be extra careful given our current health care situation.

DESCRIPTION
At the upper elevations skiers and riders could trigger pockets of wind slab formed by southwest to westerly winds. These slabs could be 6 to 18 inches deep and large enough to injure or carry a person long distances on very steep slopes. They may become more sensitive to human triggers during the warmest portion of the day.
