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.
Primary Problem: Wind-Drifted Snow

  • Ice climbers triggered this small, but potentially consequential avalanche on their approach to Twin Falls on Sunday. This is a good reminder that the avalanche season is here. Anyone in or below avalanche terrain is subject to this hazard. Carry avalanche rescue equipment (beacon, shovel, and probe), practice safe travel rituals, and evaluate the hazard with a quick snowpit. Photo: J. Schuler

  • These are dangerous days if you are a snowperson out recreating in the backcountry. Make sure to travel one at a time and watch out for slopes above 30 degrees. Photo: Snowy McSnowerton

  • We hiked in to put up the Flanders weather station on 9/25 and found a spotty distribution of 4-6" of snow above 8,000'. Photo: GNFAC

  • 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
