Avalanche Advisory: Saturday - Feb 17, 2018

Bottom Line:

Saturday (2/17) - The avalanche danger for today is LOW, small avalanches in isolated areas or extreme terrain possible. Small Loose Wet avalanches may be possible at lower elevations as the snow thaws and becomes wet. Rollerballs originating from rocks and trees on steep sunny slopes can be an indicator the snow is loosing strength. Above treeline, possible lingering isolated wind slabs where terrain features favor drifting. Watch for shooting cracks, hollow sounding drifts just under cornices, on convexities, and in steep chutes.

Below ~9,000’, natural and triggered releases are unlikely due to thin snow coverage (below threshold).​
