Avalanche Forecast for Thursday, April 18, 2019

New wet snow falling this afternoon on high winds may contribute to wet snow avalanche problems as older wind slabs turn wet today. Wet loose avalanches, or sluffs, are also possible today, even on the older snow surface. Sluffing will be more intense in areas of Monday’s drier snow, which appears white when compared to the darker, melt/freeze surface. Beware of the sliding fall potential that exists today particularly on shady areas this morning. Any avalanche activity today should be easily avoidable and limited to the more recent snow becoming wet in the sun or being further loaded this afternoon by up to an inch of new snow drifting on increasing winds. LOW avalanche danger exists today in all forecast areas.
