Avalanche Advisory
Advisory: Skyline Area Mountains Issued by Brett Kobernik for Friday - February 12, 2016 - 6:43am
bottom line

Things remain fairly stable and you have to look around to find trouble today. Most likely spots are a slope approaching 40 degrees in steepness on north through east facing terrain which has already avalanched this season. If you do happen to trigger a slide in this terrain, it will likely be at least 3 feet deep. It is a low probability but something to keep in mind. I suspect southerly facing slopes will heat up and we may see some minor wet loose activity on those slopes but that seems to have mostly run it's coarse this week already.

current conditions

High pressure continues with lots of slopes having wet snow or sun crusts. There's still some nice soft settled snow on the due north shady slopes.
