Springtime snow and weather warrant careful attention paid to changing conditions.  New snow will bring loose dry and wind slab problems, while midday warming will bring the chance of loose wet and wet slab avalanches.  Excercise safe travel habits as weather changes will have direct impact on the avalanche hazard.

LOW avalanche danger exists for all elevations today.  Even though snow surface melt should be slower today due to strong winds compared to the last several days, loose wet avalanches may still occur. Instability should be less widespread than earlier in week.  Avoid travel on or below steep slopes that have wet snow.

MODERATE avalanche danger exists near and above treeline where wind slabs formed in the past couple of days. Persistent slab avalanches are still a concern near and above treeline as last week's snow has buried weak layers down in the snowpack. Human triggered wind slab and persistent slab avalanches are possible today near and above treeline. Below treeline, low avalanche danger exists. Watch for unstable loose wet snow avalanches as the sun warms south and west aspects in the afternoon.

MODERATE avalanche danger exists near and above treeline today. Soft wind slabs formed above treeline in the past couple days. Persistent slab avalanches are still a concern near and above treeline as last weeks snow has buried weak layers down in the snowpack. Human triggered wind slab and persistent slab avalanches are possible today near and above treeline. Below treeline, low avalanche danger exists. Watch for unstable snow on isolated terrain features, especially south and west aspects in the afternoon.

MODERATE avalanche danger exists near and above treeline due to wind slabs formed below ridgetops as well as persistent slabs that are resting under the recent storm snow.  Human triggered wind slab and persistent slab avlanches are possible today near and above treeline. Below treeline, low avalanche danger exists. Watch for unstable snow on isolated terrain features.

CONSIDERABLE avalanche danger exists near and above treeline due to storm slabs formed from recent heavy snowfall and strong wind.  MODERATE danger exists below treeline. Human triggered storm slab avlanches are likely today and natural avalanches still remain possible near and above treeline.  Buried persistent slabs are still a potential problem, and dangerous avalanche conditions exist.  Careful snowpack evaluation, cautious route finding and conservative decision-making are essential today.

Human triggered Storm Slab avalanches remain likely today near and above treeline and possible below treeline on slopes steeper than 32 degrees. Natural avalanches are possible. CONSIDERABLE danger exists near and above treeline.  Some large and destructive avalanches could occur.  Carefully evaluate the snowpack and the terrain, as dangerous avalanche conditions exist. Conservative decision making and terrain choices are critical today.
