Avalanche Danger High In The Sierra

(CBS 13) SACRAMENTO A weekend of heavy snow, high winds and warming weather are creating some dangerous conditions in the Sierra. The U.S. Forest Service has issued an avalanche advisory.

The area of concern covers the central Sierra Nevada mountains between Yuba Pass on the north and Sonora Pass on the south. It only applies to the areas outside of developed ski resorts.

The Forest Service says widespread avalanche activity was seen on Sunday. They expect that pattern to conitnue with the new warmer storm hitting the Sierra, the new snow from the weekend storm and strong winds.

They warn that any backcountry area wide enough to ski, snowboard or snowmobile through is especially susceptible to avalanches.
