Ogden Outdoor Adventure Show 267 - Bear, Bison, and Snow
The danger is CONSIDERABLE today for soft wind drifts and all-but-certain long running sluffs in the low density snow. These will be big enough to catch, carry, and bury a person today. The danger may spike to HIGH during periods of high snowfall rates or if the winds become unreasonable and gusty. Remember that avalanche terrain includes runout zones beneath steep terrain.
HOT TIP! - Low density snow is still world class on low angle slopes.
