Avalanche Advisory: Monday - Mar 19, 2018

Monday (3/19) – Overall avalanche hazard to day is Moderate. Loose Wet avalanches will be a concern on solar aspects (SE–S-SW), especially in steep rocky terrain near treeline and below where strongest heating will take place. Potential lingering Wind Slabs on NW-N-NE-E-SE aspects in the Upper Elevations.
