Utah Avalanche Center Advises Backcountry Users to Avoid all Avalanche Terrain

Dangerous avalanche conditions exist. Avoid all avalanche terrain.

Today the avalanche danger is EXTREME at mid and upper elevations. The avalanche danger is HIGH at low elevations. Avoid being under or near any steep slope. Even very small slopes can bury a person.

Heavy snowfall, strong westerly winds, and a weak faceted snowpack have created very dangerous avalanche conditions. Natural and human-triggered avalanches are certain. Even unusual avalanches are possible in atypical terrain on atypical aspects and elevations.

Anybody going into or near the mountains today should avoid being near or under any steep slope – this includes skiing, snowshoeing, running, sledding, dog walking, etc.
