X Elevation Bands: Upper Elevation refers to the region where wind plays a dominant role in shaping the mountain snowpack. Alpine cirques, bowls, and exposed ridges are examples of this terrain. Trees are very sparse or do not exist at all. This zone receives more snowfall than Middle and Lower Elevations, but the wind can aggressively redistribute the snow and create large expanses of bare rock or ground in the middle of winter. Snowpack depths can vary greatly at Upper Elevations. Lower Elevation terrain includes slopes within a few hundred vertical feet of valley floors in the major drainages. This includes avalanche paths that can block rivers, strike roadways and large glacial lakes, and bury cross country ski trails. This band receives the least snowfall – and the most rain – of the three elevation bands. Middle Elevation terrain receives less snowfall than Upper Elevations, but the snowpack depths vary less due to less wind. Over the course of an average year, avalanches occur most frequently at Upper Elevations and least often in Lower Elevation terrain.

Avalanche Danger Rose: this graphic represents an avalanche forecaster's idea of how the avalanche danger exists across the topography in a given region. It is not a map...it is an idea. Picture it as a cone-shaped mountain viewed from above, built of three elevation bands; the outer ring represents low elevations, the middle ring represents middle elevations, and the innermost circle represents high elevations. Each elevation band is divided into sectors that represent the slope aspect (N-NE-E-SE-S-SW-W-NW). Each sector\'s color represents the avalanche danger rating assigned that day (see Avalanche Danger Scale).

In this example, the Avalanche Danger Rose depicts an avalanche danger rating of considerable on all high elevation aspects and on north to west-facing mid elevations; all other sectors possess moderate avalanche danger. The illustration depicts the spatial distribution of this forecast across a landscape.

Avalanche Problem Rose: this graphic represents an avalanche forecaster's idea of the distribution of a particular avalanche problem across the topography in a given region. Picture it as a cone-shaped mountain viewed from above, built of three elevation bands; the outer ring represents low elevations, the middle ring represents middle elevations, and the innermost circle represents high elevations. Each elevation band is divided into sectors that represent the slope aspect (N-NE-E-SE-S-SW-W-NW). Sectors colored grey are thought to have the identified avalanche problem while white sectors do not.

In this example, the Avalanche Problem Rose indicates that a particular avalanche concern exists on all high elevation aspects and on north to west-facing mid elevations and that this concern is far less likely to be encountered on other aspects and elevations.
X Chance of Avalanches: This graphic depicts how likely you are to trigger avalanches or encounter natural avalanches while traveling on avalanche prone slopes. Unlikely means that few avalanches could be triggered in avalanche terrain and natural avalanches are not expected. The chance of triggering or observing avalanches increases as we move up the scale. Certain means that humans will be able to trigger avalanches on many slopes, and natural avalanches should be expected.
X Size of Avalanches: This graphic depicts the potential size and destructive force of expected avalanches. Small avalanches are not large enough to bury humans and are relatively harmless unless they carry people over cliffs or through trees or rocks. Moving up the scale, avalanches become large enough to bury, injure, or kill people, large enough to bury or destroy vehicles and break a few trees, and large enough to destroy railway cars, buildings, or a substantial amount of forest. Historic avalanches are massive events capable of destroying villages and gouging or altering the landscape.

Current Forecast Summary
Sunday January 20, 2019 7:30 am by Ethan Davis

All Zones | Sawtooth Mountains | Smoky & Boulder Mountains | Wood River Valley | Soldier Mountains

Sawtooth Mountains - Bottom Line

The avalanche danger will increase with additional snow and wind this afternoon. Newly fallen and wind-blown snow is stressing fragile weak layers buried in the lower half of the snowpack. You are most likely to trigger an avalanche where the wind has formed drifts or stiffened the snow surface, especially where the entire snowpack is less than about 3 feet deep. It’s possible to trigger an avalanche from a distance: from the sides, above, or from flat ground below steeper slopes. ...MORE

Mountain Weather Summary

Yesterday was partly to mostly cloudy in the morning with increasing clouds, snow and valley rain (Stanley and Fairfield) in the afternoon. Daytime high temperatures reached into the low 30sF and wind blew light from the west. Snow totals reached 3-8” in the Sawtooth and Smoky Mountains and 2-5” in the Wood River Valley and the Soldier Mountains. Based on water amounts, snow totals of 10” or more may have fallen in portions of the western Smokys. Overnight, temperatures cooled to the upper 20sF and wind blew light to moderate from the southwest.

Today, expect a healthy dose of snow, mild temperatures, and cloudy skies as an upper-level trough nudges a plume of Pacific moisture into the forecast area this afternoon. Daytime highs will reach near 30F and wind will blow light to moderate from the southwest. Light snow showers are possible this morning but the heaviest snow is forecast to coincide with the passage of a cold front this afternoon. Snow amounts by tomorrow morning will total 6-12” in the Sawtooth and Western Smoky Mountains, 4-9” in the Soldiers and 3-8” in the mountains near the Wood River Valley. Some of this precipitation will fall as rain this morning in Stanley and to a lesser extent in the Wood River Valley. Rain should switch over to snow as cold air filters in behind the cold front this afternoon.
