Avalanche Warning in Effect for Sun Valley


Many Twin Falls residences have been going to Sun Valley to snowboard and ski because Pomerelle has been the only mountain open until  last weekend when Magic Mountain opened.

If you do go to Sun Valley to ski beware there have been Avalanche warnings. According to The Times-News, high winds and snowfall over the weekend have created avalanche conditions in the Sun Valley area. The Sawtooth Avalanche Center said high risk is at upper elevations and considerable risk is at middle elevations.Terrain surrounding Bald Mountain is at considerable risk, said the Sawtooth Avalanche Center.
New snow on a thin, weak snowpack and high wind has created wind slabs with high probability of avalanches on slopes steeper than 30 degrees.

The avalanche warning is in effect until further notice for the Sawtooth, western Smoky and Soldier Mountains as well as for alpine terrain near Galena Summit, reported the National Weather Service.

People in the warning area are encouraged to check avalanche conditions by calling 208-622-8027 or, said Mike Huston, NWS Pocatello meteorologist.
