According to the Colorado Avalanche Information Center, the northern mountain region, central mountain region, and southern mountain region are currently all facing “moderate” avalanche risk. This means that there is “heightened avalanche risk on certain terrain features.”

Already this month, 72 avalanches have been observed around the state, including some at Rocky Mountain National Park and others near the Eisenhower Tunnel. See the full list of these observed avalanches here.

This “moderate” rating is the second level of risk out of five, ranked in the order of “low”, “moderate”, “considerable”, “high”, and “extreme.”
