Avalanche Activity

The highway avalanche hazard is MODERATE.

The avalanche hazard will increase overnight.


A dramatic change in weather has begun. Models suggest 2 inches of water Sunday and Monday. Precipitation has started as snow down to sea level, but the freezing level looks to climb to 2000 feet Monday. This should translate into 20 inches of snow in the upper mountains and a bunch of slop at sea level. Moderate to strong wind will load western aspects. The avalanche hazard will increase overnight. The rest of the week will continue to be busy with snow and rain, so the avalanche hazard will probably remain elevated.
