General Avalanche Advisory
Happy Thanksgiving. At the upper elevations of the Tetons, there is a potential for backcountry riders or skiers to trigger pockets of slab that were formed by southwest to northwest winds. Avalanches are unlikely at the mid elevations and low elevations lack sufficient coverage for an avalanche rating. Caution is advised today as many terrain hazards lurk just below the snow surface and even small avalanches could result in serious injury.
