April 4, 2019 at 6:58

The avalanche danger remains MODERATE for all elevations. Daytime warming and a weak overnight refreeze make loose wet avalanches an ongoing problem. Some lingering wind slab problems may still exist at the upper elevations.

The avalanche danger should remain LOW for near and above treeline areas since wind slab formation should remain limited due to meager snowfall amounts. Below treeline potential rain on snow and warmer temperatures will keep the avalanche danger at MODERATE since loose wet avalanches may be possible.

April 6, 2019 at 6:59

MODERATE avalanche danger will exist at all elevations today as daytime warming and potential rain on snow allow loose wet avalanches to become possible. Small wind slab problems may also exist on some exposed slopes in near and above treeline terrain.

April 7, 2019 at 6:45

MODERATE avalanche danger is expected today at all elevations due to a combination of loose wet avalanches and lingering wind slabs. Anticipate increasing avalanche concerns due to warming as the day progresses.

April 11, 2019 at 6:59

The avalanche danger should remain LOW for all elevations due to a good overnight refreeze and cooler weather with minimal amounts of new snow today. Firm icy surfaces may exist on many open slopes. Use normal caution when traveling in the backcountry.

LOW avalanche danger will exist this morning while the snow surface remains frozen and firm. As the day warms up and the frozen snow starts to soften and melt, the avalanche danger may increase to MODERATE. Some loose wet avalanche problems could become possible if enough daytime warming occurs.

April 21, 2019 at 6:30

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.

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.
