Avalanche season arrives in the Bridger-Teton

A storm bringing more than 2 feet of snow to parts of Bridger-Teton National Forest last week is raising
alarms about the risk of avalanches just as skiers begin entering the backcountry.

Forecasters at Bridger-Teton National Forest Avalanche Center
elevated the slide danger to "considerable" at upper elevations.
Officials say that more than 16 inches fell at Grand Targhee Ski Resort Thursday, with
an additional 10 inches expected through the weekend.
