Northwest Avalanche Center

Northwest Avalanche Center:

The NWAC app is a staple on many a northwest hiker’s phone, because it provides such reliable, up to the minute, trustworthy information about avalanche danger, weather, and snow conditions. The map is updated no less than once a day, and is based on thorough field research conducted by expert forecasters.

The NWAC website includes in-depth information on the following topics:

  • Forecasts (avalanche and mountain weather)
  • Education (register for classes, glossary of backcountry terms)
  • Observations (reports, with photos, of numerous specific areas)
  • Events (a calendar of upcoming events, workshops, and classes)
  • Links (to weather stations, a radar and satellite index, and snow depth climatology)
  • Accidents (incident reports of every reported avalanche in the northwest since 1998)
