Forecast for the Skyline Area Mountains

Issued by Brett Kobernik for Wednesday, February 7, 2018 - 6:52am

The majority of the terrain along the Skyline still has a LOW avalanche danger. There is a MODERATE danger on slopes steeper than 35˚ and higher than 9500' that face northwest through east especially where fresh drifts have formed. You can travel safely in most of the terrain today but if you start looking for trouble on steep upper elevation slopes, there's a slight chance you might find it.

Weather and Snow

The few inches of new snow from Monday's small storm improved riding conditions and didn't really change the avalanche danger a whole lot. I did not see any avalanche activity during my travel on Tuesday. I did not experience any cracking or collapsing. I'm still finding weak snow near the ground but at this time it is mostly dormant and will need additional snow on top of it before it becomes reactive again.
