Important Information

Dangerous avalanche conditions often exist in the region during the winter. If you don't have the skills to make an assessment of potential avalanche danger for yourself we recommend that you stay below the snow line and away from the runout zones of the many avalanche paths that are found in the area. For information on where to learn more follow the links below.
