Forecast for the Provo Area Mountains
Issued by Trent Meisenheimer for Saturday, January 19, 2019 - 6:09am
The Avalanche Danger remains HIGH on all upper elevation slopes, CONSIDERABLE on all mid elevation slopes. Avoid all travel in avalanche terrain, which is slopes steeper than about 30 degrees and traveling below steep slopes and in avalanche runout zones. Today’s wind and warming temperatures will keep the snow unstable. Those with excellent avalanche and route finding skills will find an untracked wonderland of snow on low angle, wind sheltered slopes with excellent turning conditions.
While the backcountry will be dangerous over the next several days, enjoy the Greatest Snow on Earth at some of the Greatest Ski Resorts on Earth where they employ teams to help mitigate the risk.
