Near and above treeline HIGH avalanche danger will develop on NW-N-NE-E aspects, on slopes 35 degrees and steeper. Areas of HIGH avalanche danger may also form near and below treeline on NW-N-NE aspects steeper than 35 degrees. CONSIDERABLE danger exists on all other aspects. Dangerous natural and human-triggered avalanches are likely today due to high winds, intense snowfall, and a weak snowpack. Travel in or near avalanche terrain is not recommended.
