Ogden Avalanche Advisory

Forecaster: Brett Kobernik


Today brings snow to the high country and reminds us that winter is on its way. While we are all excited about the upcoming season and to see snow, in reality it's a bit too early still. We'd rather see it melt out then stick around and facet and turn into a weak sugary layer that gives us problems down the road.

We're getting geared up for the upcoming season here at the UAC. We continue to refine our web site and will have some new stuff for you to use this winter. The first is a comprehensive avalanche class list that we are working on with all the class providers and will be updated as time goes on. You can find it by clicking on Education above. We will have an easier method for displaying and searching for photos, avalanche occurances, accidents, snowpits, etc including a google map interface. Drew will have his initial terrain route ratings maps available as well. Stay tuned for other things as well.

Thanks to everyone who came to the fundraiser at Black Diamond a few weeks back not to mention everyone who made it happen. It's great that the community is so willing to support the Utah Avalanche Center and it's always a great gathering.

Keep an eye out for upcoming events such as the Powderwhores release of thier new flick and the Utah Snow and Avalanche Workshop. Go to the home page and look at upcoming events on the left hand side.

If you're looking for weather, check our Mountain Weather Page that has various radar, satallite, graphs and links to external weather products.

See you soon!
