Yesterday's very strong westerly winds created CONSIDERABLE danger on drifted upper and mid elevation slopes. Dangerous conditions exist in the backcountry today, and people are likely to trigger avalanches of wind drifted snow. Avalanches are possible at all elevations, and some could fail on a buried persistent weak layer and be large, destructive, and very dangerous. You can find safer conditions at lower elevations, on lower angled slopes, and in sheltered terrain.

Evaluate snow and terrain carefully. Use caution while route finding, and make conservative decisions.

Avoid travel on or under steep drifted slopes.

5:35 AM Sat 01/18/20: Guys, we made it, finally! MUCH quieter weather is expected this weekend as high pressure builds in. A couple snow showers can't be ruled out across the Central Mountains, Upper Snake Highlands, and Teton Valley areas, but they should be low-impact. Check out those lower wind gusts...we should see much less blowing/drifting today, which should help to keep highways open! #idwx
