Forecast for the Ogden Area Mountains
Issued by Mark Staples for Wednesday, November 9, 2022
HEADS UP today! There is a lot of dense heavy snow which has doubled the snowpack, and there are many ways for avalanches to break today. There is simply a lot of very heavy new snow containing a lot of water combined with strong south winds blowing for the last 48 hours. At lower elevations, there was rain before temperatures cooled.
I am totally uncertain how the snowpack will react today. What I know for sure is that I would avoid avalanche terrain today. For these reasons today, the avalanche danger is HIGH at mid and upper elevations. Low elevations have a CONSIDERABLE danger.
Skiing and riding was very limited just a few days ago, but this storm has help coverage significantly. Go to low angle terrain less than 30 degrees in steepness with nothing steeper above you to avoid avalanches. With such dense supportable snow underneath and lighter snow falling today, riding conditions will be great.
