More Snow, More Avalanches

This is not the time to venture into avalanche prone terrain. Western Montana has received large amounts of snow, up to 26” in some places, and that has caused several avalanches. A quartet of snowmobilers stopped in a low lying area in cabinet Mountains on the Montana-Idaho border and were engulfed, with one man losing his life.  A snow slide closed Hwy 200 just outside Bonner early Monday morning covering a vehicle. No one was injured but it took road crews about an hour and a half to clear the highway. Snow survey personnel reported heavy slabs of snow breaking loose in Rattlesnake drainage, a favorite recreation area just outside Missoula. Avalanche Danger is high right now and isn’t likely to change. The latest information from the Missoula Avalanche Center is very detailed. Make sure you check conditions before you go out for an adventure.
