'Avalanche warning' issued for Mount Hood with several feet of new snow
The Northwest Avalanche Center issued an avalanche warning for Mount Hood through Monday evening.
The concern arises when there is weak, old snow sitting on a strong crust, which could create “very large and reactive slab avalanches.”
The strong wind is also a concern.
Crews at the mountain resorts will likely be working to mitigate that risk through the day.
