Avalanche Advisory: Saturday - Apr 21, 2018

Bottom Line:

Sunny skies, weak overnight freezes, and above seasonable temperatures will elevate the potential for Loose Wet activity thru Monday. Natural Loose Wet avalanches are possible, especially in steep rocky terrain, triggered releases likely. Moderate to strong NE winds during the day (4/20) and early evening formed Wind Slabs on NW-SW-SE aspects, which have begun to settle and strengthen. Wind Slabs will become increasingly unlikely as more time elapses. Anticipated Wind Slab activity will generally be limited to small isolated pockets in steep or complex terrain from ~ 9500’ and above. Natural Wind Slab avalanches unlikely, triggered release possible.
