...Increased Risk for Avalanches in the North Country...

Recent heavy snowfall combined with previous warm ups have created
the potential for avalanches in the exposed back country of the
Green Mountains in Vermont and the Adirondacks in northern New
York. Several small avalanches have already been reported.

Outdoor enthusiasts heading into the back country through the
upcoming weekend need to be aware of the avalanche danger and the
associated risks involved. Steep, open slopes will have the
highest potential avalanche risk.

If you go into the back country of the Adirondacks Mountains or
Green Mountains to snow shoe, ski, or ice climb, be aware of the
avalanche danger and take the appropriate precautions.

Avoid avalanche prone areas such as steep, unstable slopes,
including vulnerable locations at the bottom of steep terrain. If
skiing, hiking, or snow shoeing stay on marked trails and avoid
exposed, open slopes.

Monitor announcements from local or state officials about the
possible risk of avalanches.
