Forecast for the Uintas Area Mountains
Issued by Craig Gordon for Thursday, April 7, 2022
MODERATE avalanche danger is found on the leeward side of upper elevation ridges in the wind zone where a rogue wind drift or two may still react to our additional weight and human triggered avalanches are POSSIBLE. While not particularly widespread and trending on the pockety side, today's avalanches may still catch you off guard. So... if you're getting after it and onto sustained steep slopes or tagging big, committing, complex terrain, take a minute and think about the consequences of triggering even a small avalanche that can knock you off your feet, board, or sled and throw a curve ball at a stunning day. Wind sheltered slopes offer generally LOW avalanche danger and that means human triggered avalanches are UNLIKELY.
