BULLETIN - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
Avalanche Warning...CORRECTED
Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center
Relayed by National Weather Service Riverton WY
713 PM MST Fri Mar 1 2024

...The Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center in Jackson has issued a
BACKCOUNTRY AVALANCHE WARNING which is in effect until Midnight
Sunday Morning...

* WHAT...The avalanche danger is expected to increase to High
  overnight. Intense snowfall rates and increasing winds will make
  natural avalanches likely and human-triggered avalanches very
  likely.

* WHERE... Northwest Wyoming including Togwotee Pass, the Teton,
  Snake River, Salt River, and Wyoming Ranges. Mountainous areas
  of southeast Idaho including the Webster, Preuss, Caribou, Snake
  River and Big Hole Ranges.

* WHEN...In effect until Midnight Sunday morning.

* IMPACTS... Heavy snowfall and strong winds will create
  dangerous avalanche conditions. Roof slides, and separate non-
  avalanche hazards like tree wells and snow immersion, are also
  likely.

* PRECAUTIONARY / PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...Very dangerous avalanche
  conditions will develop tonight. The combination of intense
  snowfall and wind will create wind slabs that will be large and
  easy to trigger. Avalanche conditions will be most dangerous on
  slopes with windblown snow, but triggering a slide breaking on
  steep, sheltered slopes is also possible. Avoid terrain exposed
  to steeper slopes overhead, and avoid wind-loaded terrain.
  Human-triggered and natural avalanches are very likely.
  Avalanches may involve deeper, weak layers of snow and produce a
  larger avalanche than expected. Avalanches could run onto low
  angle terrain, hitting paths, roads or groomed snowmobile
  trails.

Consult bridgertetonavalanchecenter.org or
avalanche.org for more detailed information.

Similar avalanche danger may exist at locations outside the
coverage area of this or any avalanche center.
