Or call one of their hot lines:
Front Range, Summit Vail
Northern and Southern San Juan
Thanks CO native.
All, with the wind SW , does that mean the most wind loading will occur on NE faces, and thus, those would be the areas with the most avy danger immediately after the storm?
I've been thinking about this from a newbie perspective, and it would seem logical to look for bc runs that are somewhere in the middle, not into the wind and bulletproof but not wind loaded directly on the lee side either. I plan to take a full avalanche course sometime this winter but is this accurate if one is making conservative decisions with respect to the other factors ( sun , time of day, snowpack, etc?)
