Forecast for the Moab Area Mountains
Issued by Mark Staples for Monday, March 11, 2019 - 6:58am
Today's conditions require careful snowpack evaluation and cautious route-finding. Triggering an avalanche may have gotten a just little harder to do today compared to yesterday, but there is still too much uncertainty and these are dangerous conditions. The most likely places to trigger a slide are mid and upper elevation slopes that were loaded by strong southerly winds where the avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE.
Slopes without a load of wind drifted snow may still have weak layers lurking in the snowpack making human triggered avalanches possible. The avalanche danger on low elevation slopes and non wind loaded slopes is MODERATE.
