Forecast for the Abajos Area Mountains
Issued by Eric Trenbeath for Tuesday, February 5, 2019 - 7:29am
Blowing and drifting snow have created dangerous avalanche conditions and the avalanche danger is HIGH on upper elevation slopes that face the north half of the compass. Natural and human triggered avalanches are likely on steep, wind drifted slopes, and natural avalanches are possible off the steep, higher peaks. Above treeline, shallow wind slabs may be found on all aspects, but deeper drifts will have formed on slopes facing NW-N-E. Avoid steep slopes with recent deposits of wind drifted snow, and stay out from under high, steep faces that have a northerly aspect.
