Forecast for the Salt Lake Area Mountains
Issued by Mark Staples for Wednesday, November 9, 2022
HEADS UP today! In most places, the snowpack has more than doubled 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 low 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.
Riding conditions should be excellent and will only get better today. Go to low angle terrain less than 30 degrees in steepness with nothing steeper above you to avoid avalanches.
