Turnagain Advisory
Tuesday, January 22nd 2019
A generally LOW avalanche danger exists across all elevations bands for the Turnagain area today. Triggering a slab avalanche is unlikely but not impossible. As winds increase and snow falls the danger may rise to MODERATE in the Alpine late in the day. Pay attention to changing conditions and expect the avalanche danger to increase overnight. Avoid/limit your exposure time under glide cracks, give cornices a wide berth and watch your sluff.
