Laramie, Wy – An avalanche forecaster is saying the snow conditions in northwest Wyoming are unstable. Bob Comey does forecasts for the Bridger Teton National Forest. He says the snow is similar to the winter of 2000 when seven people in Wyoming died in avalanches. He says the best thing for people to do is be conservative because snowmobilers, skiers and snowboarders can find some fun places to recreate without putting themselves at risk.
Comey says the unstable layer of snow will linger until January. He says people can get an avalanche forecast online at www.jhavalanche.org. He says it is geared towards western Wyoming but is beneficial for people in the central part of the state too.
