Avalanche Forecast

The Utah Avalanche Center's avalanche forecast for the Salt Lake area on Tuesday, December 1, says, "Most terrain has a generally LOW avalanche danger. However, with gusts up to 90 mph overnight, areas of MODERATE danger exist at all upper elevations for triggering a stubborn slab of wind drifted snow. These wind slabs will be generally shallow and isolated to specific terrain features that allow for drifting snow to accumulate. REMEMBER that getting caught in even a small avalanche could have significant consequences with the risk of hitting a rock, stump, or downed timber."
