    HIGH Avalanche Danger

    ZONE AVALANCHE FORECASTS
    * MT HOOD AREA-
    ...AVALANCHE WARNING...
    HIGH avalanche danger below 7000 feet Thursday through early
    Friday. Slow decrease in avalanche danger Friday afternoon
    and night becoming HIGH above 5000 feet and CONSIDERABLE
    below.

    SNOWPACK SYNOPSIS
    Additional heavy snow of 12 to 20 inches has accumulated at
    warmer temperatures and with strong west winds since early
    Wednesday. This has added additional loading to an already
    weak and unstable snowpack. Widespread natural avalanches
    have occurred from late Wednesday through early Thursday
    morning.

    Continued heavy snow accumulations are expected through
    early Friday. This should maintain mostly unstable snow with
    additional natural avalanches likely and some large and
    potentially destructive slides possible.

    We do not recommend back country travel near avalanche
    terrain on Thursday.
