Eastern Sierra Avalanche Advisory - 1/19/18

Bottom Line:

Avalanche danger today will be CONSIDERABLE near and above treeline. Newly formed wind slabs could produce many small and even some large avalanches on leeward slopes. In isolated areas near treeline, wind slab avalanches could activate the remains of our persistent slab problem and potentially create avalanches that are quite large. Natural avalanches are possible; human triggered avalanches are likely.

Below ~9,000’, even with small amounts of new snow, coverage is thin and avalanches are unlikely.
