This information is a Conditions Update. Danger ratings are only issued with avalanches advisories.  The next avalanche advisory is scheduled for Saturday January 26, 2019. s


Triggering a slab avalanche is unlikely at this time, but it is not impossible.  Small avalanches are possible in isolated or extreme terrain.  It is still important to be cautious of terrain traps such as cliffs, rocks, and gullies, where even a small avalanche in an isolated location could have higher consequences.  If Hatcher Pass receives new snow, especially with wind, avalanche danger will rise relative to new snow amounts.  More snow + more wind = more avalanche danger.
