Forecast for the Uintas Area Mountains
Issued by Craig Gordon for Tuesday, December 11, 2018 - 3:47am
In the wind zone in mid and upper elevation terrain at and above treeline, the avalanche danger is MODERATE. Human triggered avalanches are possible in steep, wind drifted terrain, especially on slopes facing the north half of the compass. In addition, while becoming harder to initiate, human triggered avalanches breaking into deeper, buried weak layers is a distinct possibility, particularly on any steep slope harboring old snow near the ground. Remember- triggering a slide that breaks to old snow will have severe consequences.
Swing around to the south half of the compass to slopes with no old snow near the ground and the avalanche danger drops dramatically.
