|Avalanches can occur wherever there are large amounts of snow, and a lot of snow has recently accumulated in North Central Washington. Many avalanches occur each year in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, so forest visitors need to be avalanche aware. |
No matter what backcountry recreation activity one might be involved with, or the skill level that a person may have in that activity, ALWAYS contact the Northwest Avalanche Center for a forecast of avalanche conditions prior to any trip into the backcountry.
