Avalanche Forecast for Monday, January 21, 2019

Increasing wind today will create very dangerous avalanche conditions. Wind slabs will build from the abundant recent snow accumulation that are likely to avalanche naturally. The SE half of the compass rose is likely to produce the largest avalanches today, but wind from nearly every direction in the past 24 hours means that choosing terrain to avoid wind slab avalanche danger today will be all but impossible.  Avalanche danger will increase to HIGH today. Travel in avalanche terrain is not recommended. The Southern gullies of Huntington Ravine, the Left side of Tuckerman Ravine, and elevations below 3500’ are the exceptions but remain at CONSIDERABLE avalanche danger.Terrain lacking wind affected snow, like low elevations, will hold storm slabs which you are likely to trigger.
