The KPAC avalanche forecast and general avalanche information products are based on a broad spectrum of data collected from weather stations, weather data/services, and field observations by qualified individuals.
These products are not intended to substitute for good knowledge and decision making skills in avalanche terrain. If you have any doubt of stable conditions, please stay away from avalanche terrain. You can usually find good places to go that are not prone to avalanches, such as on low angle slopes away from avalanche run-out zones. If you have any questions about where to find such places, you should consider further avalanche educational opportunities, such as those listed on our education page.
