Danger: No Rating See Scale
Though avalanches are still a concern in the high country, this is our last update of the 2015/2016 season. Thanks to our partners and sponsors for helping us provide another great season of forecasting, education, and information to the public. Thanks especially to all those who contributed to the HAIC this year, through volunteer work, observation sharing, or donations. We look forward to starting up operations again in the Fall whenever snowpack obs start coming in. Have a wild and safe summer!
