The West Central Montana Avalanche Center (WCMAC) works hard to keep backcountry travelers informed of current avalanche conditions and provide relevant information for all user groups. 

The WCMAC generates avalanche forecasts for the west-central Montana advisory area and provides information to the public regarding terrain, weather, and snow conditions that contribute to avalanche danger. Forest Service employees assist the WCMAC on the Bitterroot, Nez Perce-Clearwater, and Lolo National Forests, contributing field observations and providing infrastructure support.
