THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE IS TRANSMITTED AT THE REQUEST OF THE
COLORADO AVALANCHE INFORMATION CENTER.

* AVALANCHE DANGER...The avalanche danger will rise throughout the

* REASON...A potent winter storm will deposit one to two feet of
snow by Friday afternoon, and strong southerly winds will generate
a lot of blowing snow. Large avalanches will be very easy to
trigger by Thursday afternoon, some will release naturally.
Conditions will get more dangerous as the snow accumulates.


* PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...Watch for rapidly changing
conditions. Travel in or under avalanche terrain is not
recommended. As heavy snow continues avalanche may release
naturally and may run from mountain tops to valley floors.
