Low Avalanche Danger

The lowest of five levels on the avalanche danger scale. Under low danger, avalanche conditions are considered generally safe but avalanches can still be triggered on isolated features and in extreme terrain. Natural and human-triggered avalanches are considered unlikely.

While many people hold the attitude of “green means go” when the danger is low, one still needs to be cautious and exercise smart travel habits when entering steep slopes. Watch for any signs of instability and avoid obvious trigger points such as shallow rocky start zones.
