The Utah Avalanche Center, as of Tuesday, March 13, is reporting a moderate avalanche danger regarding wet slough and slab avalanches with daytime heating. All aspects are suspect at lower elevations and steep southerly slopes should be avoided at all elevations, especially as the day progresses. When the snow gets damp and mushy it’s time to get off of it. Keep in mind that the warmer temperatures may weaken dry, colder snow slabs enough for them to release as well on northerly aspects.
