Avalanche Advisory
Advisory: Skyline Area Mountains Issued by Brett Kobernik for Wednesday - December 7, 2016 - 7:10am
bottom line

Most of the terrain has a LOW avalanche danger. Lingering drifts from the recent wind may still be sensitive and could be triggered by a person. A MODERATE avalanche danger exists along the higher ridges and peaks.

special announcement

Please join us at Big Pine Sports for an avalanche presentation on Dec 16th at 6:30pm. I will be talking about the current conditions and sharing tips on how to stay out of avalanches. I'll cover anything else the audience is interested in.

current conditions

Well, it appears we lucked out with the small storm that rolled through last night. It deposited 4 to 5 inches of new snow. Ridgetop temperatures are right around 0 F and the westerly wind has slowed since yesterday with light to moderate ridgetop speeds currently.
