The west of the US is getting hammered since Monday. Lots of snow and heavy winds result in a dangerous layer of fresh snow. You'll also find a dangerous layer of sugar snow in many places and that's the receipe for a lot of trouble. The avalanche danger is very high in large parts of the west of the US. It's not recommended to go out in the backcountry today. Check your local avalanche forecast and prepare yourself. Do you have no knowledge of avalanches or alpine dangers? Go out with a certified guide and get more knowledge by registering yourself with Mountain Academy.
You also have to take extra care when riding inbouds. Due to snow that came down the last couple of weeks treewells have been formed and a skier passed away yesterday in a treewell in Jackson Hole.
