Despite the dry November, it’s still time to get your gear ready for the winter season! Get your sleds into the shop, your boards tuned, and make sure your beacon, shovel, and probe are ready for the season and that you know how to use them.

For the 2021-22 season, the Payette Avalanche Center will operate from early December to early April, conditions permitting. Our three forecasters plan to issue advisories on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. It’s never too early to start submitting observations! Information on early season snow and weather conditions helps our forecasts later in the season. Use the link at the top of the page to submit your observations.
