The Wallowa Avalanche Center in La Grande has issued a backcountry avalanche warning for the Blue Mountains to be in effect until 6 pm Tuesday evening.
Very dangerous avalanche conditions exist. Natural avalanches are likely and human-triggered avalanches are very likely. Travel in avalanche terrain is not recommended. Avalanches may run long distances and can run into mature forests, valley floors, or flat terrain.
For specific information on the reasoning behind this warning or for information on recent avalanche activity, please refer to the Wallowa Avalanche Center website at: WWW.WALLOWAAVALANCHECENTER.ORG.
