Avalanche Advisory for Friday, February 5, 2016

New Wind Slabs will be the developing avalanche problem today. All areas are starting the day at Low avalanche danger with widespread hard old surfaces. New snow and building winds will develop new low to moderate density thin slabs on slick bed surfaces through the day. Anticipate larger snowfields to push through the Moderate rating hedging towards Considerable if we reach the upper end of the precipitation forecast.

Avalanche Advisory for Saturday, January 30, 2016

A number of slopes, particularly with an E facing aspect, will be bumping the ceiling of the Moderate rating later today. As we move into darkness and slabs grow I would have a greater concern for natural avalanches probably crossing over towards a Considerable rating during the overnight.
