PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Avalanche danger on Mt. Hood remains ‘considerable’ above treeline on Friday.
The backcountry avalanche forecast from the Northwest Avalanche Center said the heavy snowfall this week created very large and dangerous wind slabs at upper elevations.
They said to avoid all wind-loaded slopes above treeline and use extreme caution when in the backcountry.
On Wednesday, Mt. Hood Patrol triggered a large avalanche with artillery.
