Terrain and Travel Advice

  • Back off slopes as the surface becomes moist or wet with rising temperatures.
  • Pay attention to cornices and give them a wide berth when traveling on or below ridges.
  • As surface loses cohesion due to melting, loose wet avalanches become common in steeper terrain.
