Avalanche Activity

The highway avalanche hazard is MODERATE.

The avalanche hazard will probably increase by Friday.


We received near 2 inches of water Wednesday. This translated into a couple inches of slush at sea level and probably 20 inches of heavy snow in the upper mountains. Moderate winds have loaded western aspects. Expect a quick break Thursday before precipitation gets heavy Friday. The freezing line will climb and avalanche activity should be expected then. Weather looks to be busy through the weekend, so the avalanche hazard will probably increase Friday and remain elevated.
