March 2, 2017 at 7:00

Warming temperatures, strong winds, and relatively heavy snow created dangerous conditions. The avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE above 5000 feet, and human triggered avalanches are likely.  Continued warming and additional snowfall today will cause sensitive storm slabs to become more widespread as the day progresses. Below 5000 feet where human triggered avalanches remain possible the danger is MODERATE.

The avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE above 5000 feet. Recent snowfall and winds have created dangerous avalanche conditions. Expect more snow today with strong to extreme winds. You are likely to trigger an avalanche on wind-loaded terrain and conservative decision-making is essential. In terrain sheltered from the wind, loose snow avalanches are possible due to deep unconsolidated snow. Below 5000 feet the avalanche danger is MODERATE

Winds from varying directions has drifted the recent substantial snowfall and has elevated the avalanche hazard.  The avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE above 6000 feet where fresh wind slabs should be expected on all aspects. Below 6000 feet the avalanche danger is MODERATE and below 5000 feet the danger is LOW Evaluate all terrain that has received wind loading or substantial new snow before committing to a slope. Dangerous avalanche conditions exist and conservative decision-making is essential today.

Wind speeds increased overnight and will continue to increase throughout today. These winds will drift the snow that fell earlier this week onto typical leeward aspects. In some locations this snow will accumulate onto surface hoar which will increase the instability. The avalanche danger is MODERATE above 6000 feet where fresh thin wind slabs should be expected. Evaluate all wind loaded terrain before committing to it and practice safe back country travel techniques. Below 6000 feet the danger is LOW.

The avalanche danger is MODERATE above 6000 feet due to lingering storm instabilities that exist at upper elevations. Carefully evaluate the terrain you intend to ski or ride before committing to any slope. Below 6000 feet the danger is LOW. Pay attention to isolated terrain that harbors unstable snow, and practice safe back country travel technique.

Storm slabs that formed during the abundant snow-fall early in the week sit on a thick, smooth crust that can prolong the time it takes them to settle and strengthen.  The avalanche danger is MODERATE above 6000 feet where human triggered avalanches are possible. Below 6000 feet the danger is LOW. Remember that LOW danger does not mean NO danger. Continue to practice safe back country travel technique and look for the isolated areas with unstable snow.

Heavy snow fall formed thin, reactive storm slabs late yesterday. Continued snow in the southern ranges this morning will thicken these slabs. The new storm snow will need a bit of time to settle and strengthen. The avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE above 6000 feet. Human triggered avalanches are likely. Watch for obvious signs of instability like cracking and collapsing. The danger is MODERATE at mid elevations and LOW below 5000 feet.  See advisory for Whitefish Range Here.
