Danger Scale

2-5" of snow last night in the northern ranges and Cooke City came in with west wind and buried surface hoar in Hyalite (pic). I expect touchy wind slabs today. Skiers got shooting cracks on Monday and yesterday ice climbers had a near miss when they triggered a slide in the Absarokas. Stay updated with our Weather Log, Avalanche Activity page and Advisory at www.mtavalanche.com.
