COAA has been founded by a group of Central Oregon winter recreationalists to promote increased avalanche awareness and champion increased local forecasting and tracking opportunities along the Cascade mountains of Central Oregon. We are not a Forecast Center and do not produce formalized forecasts or advisories at this time. We are a 501c3 Non-Profit built by people like you! Don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any and all questions.
Spring is in the air but plenty of snow exploration is still available to be had at the upper elevations. No matter whats taking you into the backcountry this spring it is important to remember we still need to proceed with awareness and caution. It's never a bad time to stop and make an assessment of the snowpack. A few pertinent reminders associated with spring snowpack can be found here.
Keep an eye out for those natural indicators of instability and if you are seeing something (good, bad, or indifferent) let others know through our observation page here.
