Forecast for the Uintas Area Mountains
Issued by Craig Gordon for Sunday, March 6, 2022
HEADS UP -
Last night's shot of snow has our structurally challenged weak layers teetering on the edge.
Pockety and most pronounced near and above treeline, a CONSIDERABLE avalanche danger is found where additional snow stacks up on top of a pre-existing, weak layer of sugary snow. Human triggered slides breaking deeper and wider than you might expect are LIKELY, especially on steep, upper elevation slopes facing the north half of the compass.
Mid elevation terrain at treeline offers MODERATE avalanche danger and human triggered avalanches are POSSIBLE on steep, shady slopes.
Looking for LOW avalanche danger? Well then, you've got plenty of options. Simply swing over to the south half of the compass or tag some lower elevation trailhead shots where human triggered avalanches are UNLIKELY.
