The Colorado Avalanche Information Center has issued an Avalanche Warning. Very dangerous avalanche conditions exist. Travel in or below avalanche terrain is not recommended.

Avalanche conditions will be more dangerous than we’ve experienced in weeks. Adjust your plans accordingly and check the forecast frequently for changing conditions.

New snow and wind continue to keep danger elevated at all elevations. Avalanches will be larger where thick slabs of stiff snow sit above weak buried layers. Move to low-angle terrain without steep slopes overhead if you observe fresh avalanches, shooting cracks, or collapses in the new snow.
