Forecast for the Moab Area Mountains
Issued by Eric Trenbeath for Thursday, December 6, 2018 - 6:33am
The avalanche danger remains CONSIDERABLE today on 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 have added more weight to these fragile weak layers. Avoid wind drifted slopes that have a smooth rounded appearance, and look for signs of instability such as cracking in the snow surface. On W and SE facing slopes the danger is MODERATE, Best tip today is for low angle, wind sheltered terrain.
