Bottom Line: As winds increase today into tonight, the avalanche danger will increase in wind loaded areas. Watch for recent wind loading and examine how the new snow is bonding to the surface it fell on. If you observe cracking, collapsing, recent avalanches, or propagation in your stability test, look for lower angle terrain.

  • Last weekend (9/23) there was about 14 inches of snow at 9,000'. Sun and warm temperatures created wet snow avalanches on slopes that face the sun. These small slides can be hazardous if they push you into the wrong terrain. Photo: Z. Drobnik
