Avalanche Warning
by Bridger-Teton National Forest Avalanche Center
December 24, 2008

The Bridger-Teton National Forest Avalanche Center has issued an Avalanche Warning for the period from 11:00 pm Wednesday, December 24th to 11:00 pm Thursday, December 25th.

The warning is in effect for:
Yellowstone National Park
Absaroka Mountains
Teton and Gros Ventre Mountains
Wind River Mountains West
Wind River Mountains East
Salt River and Wyoming Ranges

A potent winter storm moving into the region is expected to raise the avalanche hazard in the western Wyoming mountains to high or extreme. Large destructive avalanches are certain in the backcountry and could impact roadways. The primary hazard will be to people who venture into the backcountry to recreate, however bank slides and roof slides are also a concern in residential areas. All avalanche terrain should be avoided.

For more information visit or call 1-307-733-2664.
