Terrain and Travel Advice

  • When a thick, melt-freeze surface crust is present, avalanche activity is unlikely.
  • Pay attention to cornices and give them a wide berth when traveling on or below ridges.
  • Avoid terrain traps such as gullies and cliffs where the consequence of any avalanche could be serious.
