Forecast for the Skyline Area Mountains

Issued by Brett Kobernik for Tuesday, December 4, 2018 - 6:56am
The avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE on steep slopes above about 9500' that face northwest, north and northeast. Human triggered avalanches are probable there. AVALANCHES CAN BE TRIGGERED FROM A DISTANCE IN THE UPPER ELEVATIONS SO STAY OUT FROM UNDERNEATH AVALANCHE PATHS.
In terrain where there is no old snow from October or early November, the avalanche danger is much lower.

Special Announcements
I'll be doing our annual avalanche presentation at Big Pine Sports on December 17th, 2018 at 7pm. It's free to attend and there will be food and drinks, good deals and some giveaways!
I'll discuss the start to our winter and current avalanche conditions. I'm thinking that I'll also review an accident or two that has occurred on the Skyline. There is always a lot to learn when reviewing accidents.
