General Avalanche Advisory
Above-freezing temperatures and direct sunlight will be the main contributing factor in decreasing the snowpack’s stability today. It will be possible for skiers and riders to trigger wet snow avalanches up to 4 feet in depth. These slides typically release slowly, but the debris can be entraining and destructive. Yesterday in all the forecast areas, there were observations of wet slide activity below an elevation of 9,000 feet. Today, the temperatures at the mid-elevations are starting out warmer than the previous days this week, and depending on the cloud cover, the hazard may quickly increase between the elevations of 7,500 to 8,500 feet. The warming temperatures will also increase the potential for triggering avalanches at the lower and upper elevations and weaken cornices. As the snow surfaces become damp, the stability can quickly change to unstable, and being on or below steep slopes at all elevations should be avoided. Backcountry travelers should use careful evaluation of the snowpack and terrain to travel safely through the mountains.
