Avalanche forecast for Glacier National Park:

“Blue skies, holidays, and fresh snow…it will be BUSY in Rogers Pass this week. Watch for people above and below you! A persistent slab on surface hoar, down one metre, should be on everyone’s mind as they plan their day. Choose conservative lines!”

Alpine: 3-Considerable-Dangerous avalanche conditions. Careful snowpack evaluation, cautious route-finding and conservative decision-making essential. Natural avalanches possible; human-triggered avalanches likely. Small avalanches in many areas; or large avalanches in specific areas; or very large avalanches in isolated areas.

Treeline and below treeline: 2 – Moderate-Heightened avalanche conditions on specific terrain features. Evaluate snow and terrain carefully; identify features of concern. Natural avalanches unlikely; human-triggered avalanches possible. Small avalanches in specific areas; or large avalanches in isolated areas.
