ALPINE CONDITIONS CONTINUE IN THE HIGH COUNTRY- July 19, 2015

Storms continue to roll through the Tetons creating and maintaining alpine conditions like snow, ice and verglas. In periods of extended, unsettled weather such as we're currently in, it's important to continue studying the past, present and future weather conditions. What fell as rain or snow may quickly turn to verglas. What is iced up today could be dry tomorrow. Remember that rockfall hazard increases with precipitation. Keep an eye to the sky, stay mindful that conditions are constantly changing up high and come prepared for anything.
