CRITICAL FIRE CONDITIONS

Due to the strong winds, critical fire weather conditions will be possible this afternoon through Sunday.

AVALANCHE REPORT

Sun in the afternoon will warm the dry snow on sunny slopes. You could trigger small avalanches in the warming snow. Avoid traveling on or under sunny slopes where you observe rollerballs, pinwheels, or fan-like point releases.

Safer travel options exist in areas protected from the wind and lower-angle slopes. Continually evaluate the slopes you plan to travel on throughout the day. With forecast wind speeds over the next few days, avalanche conditions can and will change quickly. You can check the forecast at avalanche.state.co.us
