They’re back! The Utah Avalanche Center is once again making daily avalanche forecasts for the 2021-22 winter season starting today, December 6.

The UAC’s daily avalanche forecasts typically include up-to-date weather and snow information, snow forecasts, current riding conditions, recent avalanches, and an overview of a specific area’s current avalanche problems.

The current avalanche forecast for the Salt Lake area mountains published on Dec. 6, 2021 reads:

For today we have a LOW avalanche danger throughout the mountains of Northern Utah. A LOW avalanche danger means that we generally have safe avalanche conditions. Watch for and avoid unstable snow on isolated terrain features.
As always, carry a transceiver, probe, shovel, and have a partner when in the backcountry. Practice safe travel protocol by only exposing one person at a time to avalanche terrain.

The UAC typically produces daily forecasts from December until April. Please always check your area’s avalanche forecast before entering the backcountry.

Stay safe out there this winter!
