Spring Regional Avalanche Forecasts
On May 1 we started new regional avalanche forecasts. Click on the map or look under the Forecasts menu to find the three forecasts:
- - Northern Mountains (Steamboat & Flat Tops, Vail/Summit, and Front Range Zones)
- - Central Mountains (Grand Mesa, Aspen, Gunnison, and Sawatch zones)
- - Southern Mountains (North San Juan, South San Juan, and Sangre zones)
We'll issue a new round each day by 3:00 PM with information on the avalanche danger for the next two days. The danger rating is the highest expected danger rating in the region for each day. We will issue these each day through May 31.
If you are in the mountains please Submit an Observation and help us put out a better forecast for the next day. Have a great and safe spring!
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.
