Forecast for the Moab Area Mountains
Issued by Eric Trenbeath for Friday, April 12, 2019 - 7:14am
The avalanche danger is MODERATE today with two very different avalanche problems. At the upper elevations, be on the lookout for recent deposits of wind drifted snow on the lee sides of ridge crests and terrain features. On drifted slopes facing N-E-SE you may find areas of CONSIDERABLE danger. And as the day heats up, be alert to a rising danger for wet slide activity. Signs of instability include roller balls, pinwheels, and loose snow sluffs. Get off of, and out from under steep slopes if they start to become wet and sloppy.
