Snow & Avalanche Weekly Summary
The 2014/2015 winter season is on the doorstep!!
Snow is beginning to dust the mountains and accumulate in parts of the upper elevations.
The Avalanche Center will start to gear up during the later part of October. In the meantime, the observation page is ALWAYS open for business. If you are out and about send us a photo, let us know how much snow is out there, etc HERE!!
Remember, if there is enough snow to play on, there is enough snow to slide.
This is a general backcountry avalanche advisory issued for Summit Lake Area as the core advisory area(this advisory does not apply to highways, railroads, or operating ski areas).
Riding status is not associated with avalanche danger. An area will be open to motorized use in accordance to the Forest Management Plan when snow coverage is adequate to protect underlying vegetation. Backcountry hazards including avalanche hazard are always present regardless of the open status of motorized use areas.
