Forecast for the Moab Area Mountains
Issued by Eric Trenbeath for Saturday, April 16, 2022
Most terrain has generally low danger. An isolated or MODERATE danger exists for human triggered avalanches involving wind drifted snow. Unstable slabs of wind drifted snow are most likely to be found on steep, upper elevation slopes facing NW through NE through SE. Recognizable by their smooth, rounded appearance, they may sound hollow underneath. Look for them on the leeward sides of ridge crests and terrain features such as gully walls and sub ridges.
As temperatures warm today be alert to signs of loose, wet instability such as rollerballs and pinwheels, and stay off of steep slopes if they become wet and sloppy.
