Forecast for the Moab Area Mountains
Issued by Eric Trenbeath for Saturday, March 9, 2019 - 6:32am
The avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE today and human triggered avalanches are likely on steep, wind drifted slopes. The danger is greatest on mid and upper elevation terrain that faces NW-N-SE, but at upper elevations, fresh drifts may be found on all aspects. In some areas, a triggered wind drift has the potential to step down into a buried persistent weak layer causing a deeper and more dangerous avalanche. Careful snow stability analysis is required, and any wind drifted slope much steeper than about 30 degrees should be avoided.
