General Spring Avalanche Statement

We have closed shop for the 2018-2019 operating season after producing 145 avalanche forecasts. A big thanks to all who supported the avalanche center this season, making everything possible. Avalanche activity will invariably continue to occur this spring. Continued daily wet snow melt-freeze cycles will occur and additional storm cycles may impact the forecast area.  Some information and resources to aid in trip planning and decision making have been assembled on the advisory page.

LOW avalanche danger exists this morning while the snow surface is frozen and supportable. As daytime warming progresses, MODERATE avalanche danger will develop at all elevations as the snow surface melts and a loose wet avalanche problem develops. Please note that this is the last avalanche forecast for the 2018-2019 season.
