Forecast for the Moab Area Mountains
Issued by Eric Trenbeath for Wednesday, December 5, 2018 - 7:29am
The avalanche danger remains CONSIDERABLE today in steep, mid to upper elevation terrain that faces NW-N-E. and human triggered avalanches breaking down into buried, persistent weak layers are likely in these areas. In addition fresh deposits of wind drifted snow will complicate the issue. Avoid slopes that have a smooth rounded appearance, and look for signs of instability such as cracking in the snow surface. Stick to low angle, or low elevation terrain and slopes that face the southern half of the compass where you'll find Moderate to Low danger.
