WARNING – Recreating in the winter is inherently dangerous and can be deadly! There are many dangers including avalanches, hypothermia, route finding and getting stuck in the snow.

By accessing this page you acknowledge these dangers.

BE PREPARED before you leave home!

Conditions change quickly! It can be wet, sunny, or snowing all in the same hour.

During the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, continue to follow the latest guidance from local, state, and federal health officials. Avoid unnecessary risks that could impact first responders and stress medical resources.  Wear a mask when appropriate, practice social distancing, and consider recreating closer to home
