Forecast for the Uintas Area Mountains
Issued by Craig Gordon for Sunday, January 6, 2019 - 3:22am
The avalanche danger has changed in the past 24 hours and dangerous avalanche conditions are beginning to materialize.
In the wind zone, at and above treeline the avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE. Human triggered avalanches are LIKELY and natural avalanches POSSIBLE on steep slopes with recent deposits of wind drifted snow. Any avalanche triggered in steep, rocky terrain has the potential to quickly get out of hand if it breaks into deeper buried weak layers near the ground.
MODERATE avalanche danger is found on steep, wind drifted slopes at mid elevations, especially in terrain facing the north half of the compass.
If you're looking for LOW avalanche danger, simply head to big open meadows with no steep terrain above or connected to where you're riding.
