Summer Statewide Avalanche Information
We issued our last Statewide Avalanche forecast for the 2018-19 season. You can find general guidance on spring and summer avalanche safety here. Our next scheduled update is November 1, 2019. We will continue to monitor snowpack and weather conditions through the summer, and will issue updates if we anticipate unusually dangerous avalanche conditions before then. Thanks for another great season!

Help document historic avalanches
It has been a winter of historic avalanches. When you are out and about this spring and even this summer you can help the CAIC document this historic activity by submitting an observation. The location, extent, and damage to trees or structures will be helpful. And pictures are always helpful.
