JACKSON — The Bridger-Teton National Forest Avalanche Center has extended its twice-daily bulletins another week because of deep snowpack and the possibility of more snowfall.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports the center will issue avalanche forecasts through April 24. They were scheduled to end on April 17.

Bob Comey, director of the center, said Friday conditions in the northwest Wyoming mountains look more like late March than late April.

As of Friday, Rendezvous Bowl in the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort had about 13 feet of snow.

Recent warm weather has formed a crust on the snow, and the forecast over the next five days includes a 30 percent chance of more snow, leading to potentially dangerous avalanche conditions.
