Tetons have dangerous avalanche conditions

Avalanche Danger Increasing

The Bridger Teton Avalanche Center is advising that steady snowfall and strong southerly to westerly winds continue to create dangerous avalanche conditions. At the mid and upper elevations, human-triggered slab avalanches are likely on steep wind-loaded slopes and loose snow avalanches could occur naturally.

Increasing wind speeds throughout the day will form wind slabs at the mid and upper elevations and possibly small isolated pockets at the lower elevations. Over the past three days, the Tetons have received up to 30 inches of snow with three inches of water.

In the days ahead, backcountry travelers should use caution and be mindful of steep terrain, especially over terrain traps with the significant amount of loose snow that could move down the slope.
