Utah Avalanche Center

The Utah Avalanche Center, as of Friday, March 16, is issuing an avalanche watch for all the mountains of northern Utah. Avalanche conditions are expected to become more dangerous through the weekend. A weaker than average snowpack, coupled with dramatic warming, has been producing large and dangerous avalanches. This trend is expected to continue with warm temperatures over the weekend. Steep slopes and areas below any steep slopes should be avoided. People without excellent backcountry avalanches and route-finding skills should stay out of the backcountry through the weekend. For more information, call the Utah Avalanche Center hotline at 658-5512 or visit http://www.avalanche.org .
