@CAIC: LOW(1of5)Generally safe avalanche conditions, but watch out for warm/wet snow on steep sunny slopes. Rollerballs, pinwheels, and dribbling snow from cliffs are the first signs of danger. If you observe these signals, shift gears towards colder slopes Apr 22, 7:13 AM
@CAIC: LOW (1of5). Small avalanches in the new snow are possible. Avoid very steep slopes with more than about 6 inches of consolidated new snow and you can avoid avalanche problems. Apr 21, 8:05 AM
