Earliest Mount Washington Avalanche Warning in Recent Memory

Boston.Com reports The Forest Service is warning hikers in the White Mountains to pay careful attention to avalanche dangers. Officials say the especially wet weather last month has created conditions not normally seen until mid- to late-winter.

“I’ve been going up there for 15 years,” said Ranger Chris Joosen. “This by far is the earliest start and most substantial start.”

Advisories on avalanches are available at tuckerman.org. At this writing the danger was listed low to moderate but cautioned that any precipitation could change things.
