Cool temperatures overnight re-froze and strengthened the moist surface snow. The avalanche danger is LOW this morning, but will rise to MODERATE on sun exposed slopes above 5000 feet today. Move to a shaded area when you see the early signs of weakening surface snow like rollerballs or pinwheels forming on steep slopes. Remember that LOW danger does not mean no danger. Continue to make site specific snow pack and terrain evaluations as isolated areas of unstable snow exist.

The avalanche danger is Moderate at all elevations today.  Rainfall and the lack of a strong refreeze last night lead to weakening surface snow and create the potential for triggering a loose, wet avalanche.  Be aware of surface snow strength continuing to deteriorate as temperatures warm.

The avalanche danger is LOW at all elevations today, but will increase this evening.  Despite cloud cover today, rising temperatures and a bit of rain this evening will create the potential for triggering a loose, wet avalanche.  Be aware of changing conditions today.  Expect the avalanche danger to rise rapidly this evening into tonight as rain moves into the area. LOW danger does not mean no danger. Practice appropriate avalanche travel techniques.

Cool temperatures overnight currently "locked up" the snowpack at all elevations and on all aspects. The avalanche danger is LOW at all elevations this morning but the danger may rise on sunny aspects as temperatures warm and the sun breaks down the surface crust. Pay attention to changing conditions at the snow surface and move to a different aspect, or end your day early, before your skis or machine start to punch through the surface crust.

Yesterday's substantial rainfall and warm temperatures resulted in an elevated avalanche danger today. The avalanche danger is MODERATE at all elevations due to a saturated snow surface at low and mid elevations and a weakening of cornices in the upper elevations. Pay attention to changing conditions at the snow surface and below the surface where free water is percolating through the snow pack.

Warming temperatures combined with light rain overnight and through the day has, and will continue to, elevate the avalanche danger. The avalanche danger is MODERATE at all elevations this morning but may rise to CONSIDERABLE above 6000 feet if forecasted rain amounts materialize. Pay attention to changing conditions at the snow surface and below the surface where free water is percolating through the snow pack.

Freezing temperatures over the past 24 hours locked up the snowpack overnight.  The avalanche danger will begin at LOW at all elevations. Warming temperatures and abundant sunshine will increase the avalanche danger to MODERATE above 5000 feet today.  With an incoming system, be aware of warming temperatures and a spring mix of precipitation rapidly weakening the snow surface.

Large, natural loose, wet and wet slab avalanches were reported yesterday. Dangerous conditions associated with wet snow will linger until temperatures return to freezing. The avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE. Sinking deep into the snow on skis or when you step off your machine are signs that the surface snow remains unstable. Also, dig into the snow and look for pooled water above crusts that may indicate wet slab instability. Choose conservative terrain while we wait for the temperature to drop.

The avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE at all elevations today. Unseasonably warm temperatures and rain will create dangerous avalanche conditions. All weather stations reported above freezing temperatures overnight and rain over 7000 feet. Natural avalanches are possible and human triggered avalanches are likely. Pay attention to changing conditions and make conservative terrain choices.

The avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE at all elevations today. Unseasonably warm temperatures and rain will create dangerous avalanche conditions. Freezing levels are on the rise and we could see rain up to 7000 feet by this afternoon. Above freezing temperatures combined with rain often lead to an unstable snowpack. Human triggered avalanches are likely. Pay attention to changing conditions and be conservative with your terrain choices.
