The winter storm in northwest Wyoming has caused avalanches in Jackson Hole, Teton Pass, and Hoback Canyon. And the Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center says more slides are likely to come.
An avalanche warning is in effect through Friday night. Forecaster Jim Springer says that doesn’t just mean there’s a risk of avalanches; it means they’re already happening.
“If you venture out right now, you’re going to have avalanche problems,” Springer said.
He added that conditions are ideal for slides right now, because early-season snow has been sitting for so long.
