Avalanche Forecast for Wednesday, April 24, 2019

Spring hazards remain through most of the day though new snow and wind slab development is possible this afternoon. Our snowpack hasn’t refrozen for six days which makes wet loose avalanches a concern. A skier triggered but was not captured by a D1 or 1.5 wet loose avalanche in Left Gully yesterday. These types of avalanches are often harmless if carefully managed but if not, they can push you over cliff bands, into crevasses or moat. Undermined snow over flowing streams remains a threat though peak flow has subsided following recent rain and warmer temperatures. Assess the weather carefully this afternoon and bear in mind that any new wind slabs that develop are likely to be sensitive to human-triggering. Avalanche danger is LOW today.
