Forecast for the Salt Lake Area Mountains
Issued by Drew Hardesty for Friday, February 8, 2019 - 6:25am
Areas of CONSIDERABLE danger exist on many slopes in the mid and upper elevations with a MODERATE danger down low. Some avalanches may be triggered at a distance or from below. Avoid being on or beneath the heavily corniced ridgelines.
Here's the deal: It's a complicated snowpack situation right now where even very experienced people are getting surprised.
When conditions are complicated, make it simple. My recommendations:
- Ski and ride non wind-drifted southerly facing terrain before any warming occurs.
- Ski and ride low angle sun and wind sheltered terrain not beneath anything steep.
- Ski and ride at some of our Greatest Ski Resorts on Earth
