Know Before You Go
This goes for any activity or travel in avalanche prone areas. One way to get vital avalanche information is through the Bridger-Teton National Forest Back country Avalanche Hazard and Weather Forecast. This will provide you with detailed forecast information on avalanche hazards in the Teton County and Western Wyoming areas.
NOAA Weather / All-Hazards Radio just recently began broadcasting avalanche warnings on behalf of the Bridger-Teton National Forest Avalanche Center. If you have a NOAA Weather Radio with an alert function, the radio will tone out whenever an avalanche warning is issued by the Bridger-Teton National Forest Avalanche Center.
Avalanche response and recovery efforts are beyond the scope of this website. Check the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) for information on all aspects of avalanches.
