We are sad to report that the first Montana avalanche death of the 2015/16 season occurred over the weekend in Cooke City, MT. See Video

The Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center is investigating the incident and a full report will be archived in the Colorado Avalanche Information Center’s web data-base.

Please remember that if you are traveling to other parts of the state or country for the holidays, the avalanche conditions may be very different from Western Montana. You can check out the avalanche conditions across the country at www.avalanche.org
