Snow Avalanche Forecasts


Avalanche Forecast Centers/Information
Mountain Forecasts/Snow Links
Utah Avalanche Center (Wasatch Range)
Sierra Nevada Avalanche Center (Lake Tahoe Region)
***Northern and Central Nevada do not have an official avalanche forecast center. If traveling to the Jarbidge Wilderness, Independence Mountains, or Ruby Mountains, the Utah Wasatch Mountains Avalanche Center is the closest forecast center for snow stability and avalanche warnings. Even though snow conditions are very localized in nature, the Utah Avalanche Center will provide a general feel of snow stability for Northeast Nevada. Both regions are located within the Great Basin and have a dry continental snowpack.***
