NWAC has a great map that gets less attention than it should. You can post your own avalanche observations and weather observations from excursions, and I think the word really needs to get out about it. Unlike the forecasting center, the map still seems to be working. Though the danger rose display isn't relevant, avalanche reports and observations are still post-able. I think this would be a great crowd-driven resource for those of us playing in the mountains when NWAC is not forecasting and can still help people get a general idea of stability throughout the often unstable, and unforecasted springtime (as well as summer and fall). Anyone can add a report. Not all the info is required either. I just made one based on my observations yesterday and it should be the only one on the map currently.

access it here! Spread the word :D

Remember, springtime is here, and stuff is moving. The ~20 small slides I heard and saw yesterday + recent debris fields (including one that was absolutely massive) were a great indication of that.
