Avalanche warning issued for Mount Washington after NH snowstorm
The Mount Washington Avalanche Center issued an avalanche warning through midnight for areas around Mount Washington, and other steep mountainous slopes of the White Mountains.
Areas in the warning include Huntington Ravine and Tuckerman Ravine, which have a high avalanche danger Thursday.
"The size of these slopes, the available new snow, and the high winds have set the stage for very dangerous avalanche conditions today," the avalanche center said.
The avalanche center recommends people avoid all avalanche terrain as winds begin to increase.
