Recent snowfall is being transported onto leeward slopes by moderate southwesterly winds. Wind slabs are forming on lower density snow creating dangerous avalanche conditions. The avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE above 6000 feet where a human triggered avalanche is likely on wind loaded aspects. Carefully evaluate wind loaded terrain before committing to a slope. Below 6000 feet the danger is MODERATE where heightened avalanche conditions exist due to continued wind loading, warming temperatures and the potential of rain today.

Moderate to strong winds returned to our area last night and will continue through the day forming fresh wind slabs and adding weight to existing slabs. The avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE above 6000 feet where a human triggered avalanche is likely on typical leeward aspects. Carefully evaluate wind loaded terrain before committing to a slope. Below 6000 feet the danger is MODERATE where heightened avalanche conditions exist due to recent and continued wind loading and rain on snow.

Yesterday, a widespread natural avalanche cycle occurred due to dense snow being deposited onto lower density snow combined with warming temperatures. Continued moderate to strong winds overnight have formed fresh wind slabs in favored windy locations. The avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE above 5000 feet where a human triggered avalanche is likely. Carefully evaluate recent storm and wind deposited snow before committing to a slope. Below 5000 feet the danger is MODERATE where heightened avalanche conditions exist.

Very dangerous avalanche conditions exist after receiving up to 7" of heavy snow (up to 1" of SWE) overnight.  Our storm came in cold but rapidly warmed up this morning, creating  “upside-down” storm slabs.  These fresh slabs will be very reactive today and could have buried old wind slabs that developed during the last week.  The avalanche danger above 6000’ is HIGH. The avalanche danger below 6000’ is CONSIDERABLE.  Skiing and riding in avalanche terrain is not recommended today.

The avalanche danger is MODERATE above 5000 feet. More snow and moderate to strong winds today will continue to form wind slabs making it possible to trigger an avalanche on wind loaded slopes. Be cautious of all wind-loaded terrain today. Carefully evaluate the conditions before committing to a slope. Below 5000 feet the danger is LOW. Identify and avoid features of concern.

The avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE above 6000 feet. Recent snowfall and winds have created dangerous avalanche conditions. You are likely to trigger an avalanche on wind loaded terrain and conservative decision making is essential. Evaluate all terrain that has received wind loading or substantial new snow before committing to a slope. Below 6000 feet the danger is MODERATE and below 5000 feet the danger is LOW. Safe backcountry travel techniques should be practiced.

New snow overnight and continued windy conditions have kept the avalanche danger elevated. Natural and human triggered avalanches have been observed for each of the past 3 days. Above 5000 feet the avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE and human triggered avalanches are likely. Dangerous avalanche conditions exist with cautious route-finding and conservative decision making essential. Below 5000 feet the hazard is MODERATE due to the wet loose problem.
