Early this morning, avalanche danger is LOW for all elevations and aspects. In response to daytime warming, pockets of MODERATE danger will form on all aspects at all elevations on slopes 37 degrees and steeper. Human triggered loose wet avalanches are possible. Natural avalanches are unlikely.

April 13, 2014 at 6:44

Some pockets of MODERATE avalanche danger may form at all elevations and on all aspects as the day warms up. Due to cooler weather and northeast winds the wet snow instabilities that form today should remain smaller and less widespread than those that have formed on previous days. Still, small human triggered loose wet avalanches will remain possible today in some areas. Natural avalanche activity is unlikely but not impossible.

Pockets of CONSIDERABLE avalanche danger may still exist on slopes steeper than 30 degrees in near and below treeline terrain on NW-N-NE aspects above 9000 ft. due to recent snow slabs sitting on top of persistent weak layers. Human triggered avalanches could remain likely on these slopes today. MODERATE avalanche danger exists on similar slopes on those aspects below 9000 ft. due to buried wet persistent weak layers. MODERATE avalanche danger also exists and on the wind loaded NW-N-NE-E-SE aspects steeper than 35 degrees in near and above treeline terrain due to the presence of wind slabs.

HIGH avalanche danger exists on slopes steeper than 30 degrees in near and below treeline terrain on NW-N-NE aspects due to new heavy snow slabs sitting on top of persistent weak layers. Natural and human triggered avalanche are very likely on these slopes today. CONSIDERABLE avalanche danger exists on the wind loaded NW-N-NE-E-SE aspects in near and above treeline terrain due to the pressence of newly formed wind slabs on slopes 35 degrees and steeper.

Avalanche danger remains LOW for most areas today. In areas where rain falls on the snowpack, pockets of MODERATE danger could form on NW-N-NE-E aspects on slopes steeper than 37 degrees due to the possibility of loose wet avalanches.

The avalanche danger will increase tonight and tomorrow as a strong winter storm brings wind, some rain, and 1-2 ft of snow above 7000 ft. The new load on top of the already weak snowpack should cause the avalanche danger to reach HIGH meaning that natural and human triggered avalanches will become very likely tonight and tomorrow. Travel in and around avalanche terrain is not recommended tonight or during the day tomorrow.

For today, avalanche danger is generally LOW. Pockets of MODERATE danger may form on NW-N-NE-E aspects on slopes 37 degrees and steeper due to rain on snow. Areas where light rain falls on sugary, faceted surface snow hold the greatest possibility of loose wet avalanches. Rain may fall as high as 8,000' to 9,500' across the forecast area today. Snow level will generally be higher in the southern half of the area. Avalanche danger is generally nonexistent on SE-S-SW-W aspects due to the lack of snow cover.

An increase in avalanche danger my occur tonight into tomorrow. For today avalanche danger remains LOW at all elevations on snow covered NW-N-NE-E aspects. Avalanche danger is generally nonexistent on SE-S-SW-W aspects due to the lack of snow cover. The possibility of rain on snow tonight has the potential to increase avalanche danger.

Avalanche danger remains LOW on snow covered NW-N-NE-E aspects. Overall, triggering an avalanche has become unlikely, but a few small areas of unstable snow may still exist on isolated terrain features. The avalanche danger on SE-S-SW-W aspects remains nonexistent due to a lack of snow. Brandon will update the advisory by Tuesday at 7am.

Avalanche danger remains LOW on snow covered NW-N-NE-E aspects. A few small areas of unstable snow may still exist on isolated terrain features. On SE-S-SW-W aspects a lack of snow makes the avalanche danger generally nonexistent.

Avalanche danger is LOW for all elevations on snow covered NW-N-NE-E aspects. Encountering an isolated area of unstable snow has become unlikely, but may still be possible due to the variability that can exist on a regional scale. Due to melt, avalanche danger on SE-S-SW-W aspects is generally nonexistent.

Avalanche danger is LOW for all elevations on snow covered NW-N-NE-E aspects. Human triggered avalanches are unlikely at this time. Encountering an isolated area of unstable snow has become unlikely, but may still be possible due to the variability that can exist on a regional scale. Due to melt, avalanche danger on SE-S-SW-W aspects is generally nonexistent.

The avalanche danger has returned to LOW on all snow covered slopes. Human triggered avalanches are unlikely today but not impossible. Some unstable snow may continue to lurk on isolated terrain features. The SE-S-SW-W aspects do not have enough snow cover on them to warrant a danger rating.

The avalanche danger is LOW for most areas with consistent snow cover and nonexistent for areas without snow. On a few of the near treeline NW-N-NE aspects that received the most snow yesterday, some pockets of MODERATE avalanche danger may exist where human triggered avalanches may be possible on slopes steeper than 32 degrees. These more fragile areas are mostly likely to exist where small wind slabs formed above persistent weak layers.

This morning the avalanche danger remains LOW for areas with consistent snow cover. As snow and wind impact the region some pockets of MODERATE avalanche danger may form on near and above treeline NW-N-NE-E-SE aspects steeper than 32 degrees. The most likley places where human triggered avalanches could become possible are the near treeline NW-N-NE aspects where the wind slabs could sit on top of persistent weak layers.

The avalanche danger has dropped to LOW on all snow covered slopes due to a shrinking snowpack. Human triggered avalanches are unlikely today but not impossible. Some persistent slabs may continue to lurk on isolated terrain features. The SE-S-SW-W aspects do not have enough snow cover on them to warrant a danger rating.

Pockets of MODERATE avalanche danger may still exist on near and below treeline NW-N-NE aspects steeper than 32 degrees where consistent snow cover exists. Persistent slabs continue to lurk in these areas. Human triggered avalanches remain possible in these places. Lack of snow in all other areas has made the avalanche danger LOW or non-existent.

Some pockets of MODERATE avalanche danger still exist on near treeline and below treeline NW-N-NE aspects steeper than 32 degrees where consistent snow cover exists. Persistent slabs continue to lurk in these areas. Human triggered avalanches remain possible where these pockets MODERATE avalanche danger still exist. Lack of snow in all other areas has made the avalanche danger LOW or non-existent.

Pockets of MODERATE avalanche danger remain near treeline and below treeline on NW-N-NE aspects on slopes steeper than 32 degrees with consistent snow cover. This is due to lingering persistent slabs. In these areas, the possibility of human triggered avalanches remains ongoing. For all other areas avalanche danger is either LOW or non-existent due to the lack of snow cover.
