BTAC forecasters have issued avalanche warnings again. The snowpack is incredibly weak this season, unlike most seasons, due to very dry conditions with cold, clear nights earlier this winter. We urge you to look at this snowpack as a more dangerous beast than most years. Stay off of and out from below steep slopes—slopes steeper than about 30 degrees. Large avalanches will likely release on their own and may be triggered remotely—from flat terrain above, below, and to the sides of steep slopes. Natural and human-triggered avalanches may run long distances and can impact gentler terrain below.
