Avalanche Advisory: Saturday - Jan 20, 2018

Bottom Line:

The overall avalanche danger is MODERATE today at upper elevations. Light to moderate NW winds may create isolated new wind slabs with all of that light new snow available for transport. Steep, leeward slopes where the most new snow accumulated yesterday will be the most suspect. Watch for blowing snow, slopes with newly formed cornices up top, and rounded drifts as areas to avoid. Below treeline avalanches will be less likely, and below ~9,000’, the new snow is not enough to completely cover rocks and brush and avalanches are unlikely.
