Forecast for the Uintas Area Mountains
Issued by Craig Gordon for Saturday, March 26, 2022
A buried persistent weak layer remains surprisingly reactive and human triggered avalanches breaking several feet deep are LIKELY, especially on slopes facing the north half of the compass near and above treeline. In terrain with these characteristics you'll find CONSIDERABLE avalanche danger. MODERATE avalanche danger is found below treeline and human triggered avalanches breaking to this weak layer are POSSIBLE.
South and west facing terrain has been cooked by strong sunshine, but will heat up fast this morning. As the snow becomes damp, the danger rises to MODERATE for wet loose slides and sluffs. These should be relatively small and occur predictably as the day progresses.
