NEW: Avalanche Forecasts

In addition to the recently added Estimated Snow Depth, Current & Forecast Radar, and Temperature Forecast maps, we now have Avalanche Forecasts on OpenSnow!

NOTE: Avalanche Forecasts are for use by experienced backcountry travelers in uncontrolled sidecountry and backcountry terrain. These forecasts and conditions do not apply to open, in-bounds terrain at ski resorts, which is subject to avalanche control by local resort ski patrol.
