After tough ending for the winter of 2008 here in the Tetons we are starting 2009 out on a low note.
Here's hoping it will get better from here on out.

With new snow and strong winds in the forecast the hazard will increase as the day progresses. New wind slabs up to one foot in depth will form on windpacked snow surfaces and melt-freeze crusts. These slabs will increase in depth and volume and are likely to be sensitive to human triggers. Hard slabs up to eight feet in depth exist at the mid and upper elevations and lie upon persistent weak layers and good sliding surfaces near the base of the snowpack. The potential for these very dangerous slabs to be human triggered or release naturally will be increasing during the day. Large destructive avalanches are possible on a variety of aspects. TRAVEL IN AVALANCHE TERRAIN IS NOT RECOMMENDED.

Everyone have a safe and powderfilled New Year! :thatrocks:

Local Sheriff and S&R have made it clear on no uncertain terms. If you head into the backcountry you are on your own!

BTNF Avalanche forecast page
Issued: Thu January 01, 2009 5:59 PM

SITUATION:
AN AVALANCHE WARNING HAS BEEN ISSUED BY THE BRIDGER-TETON NATIONAL FOREST FOR THE MOUNTAINOUS AREAS OF WESTERN WYOMING INCLUDING JACKSON HOLE AND STAR VALLEY

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT provided by the Teton County Sheriff’s Department
During these times of significant avalanche danger, the Sheriff’s Office and Search and rescue would like to remind you that backcountry rescues may be significantly delayed or not possible.

What does this mean to you?

1. A simple broken leg on Teton Pass could mean hours of delay until Search and Rescue can access you with reasonable safety.

2. If you are caught in an avalanche in the backcountry of Teton County, a recovery may not occur until conditions warrant.
