KALISPELL - Avalanche conditions in Northwest Montana have increased from moderate to considerate at elevations above 6,000 feet.
The Swan, Whitefish and Flathead mountain ranges are all still currently under considerate avalanche danger.
Meanwhile, one person was killed in an avalanche near Fernie, British Columbia, on Monday, just 60 miles north of the Whitefish Range.
The Flathead Avalanche Center is most concerned about the northern part of the Whitefish Mountain Range that currently has the shallowest snowpack in the region this year.
The center is saying that the most active areas have been slopes with less than four feet of depth with weak layers that have gotten worse during this recent warming event.
The avalanche center is suggesting that if you do venture into the backcountry to regress to more conservative terrain and avoid steep slopes.
