Sierra Avalanche Center

Hikers, backpackers and other forest visitors should always check weather and conditions before heading into the backcountry. Great information and daily avalanche forecasts are available on the Sierra Avalanche Center website at https://www.sierraavalanchecenter.org/.

Prescribed Fire Updates

Prescribed fire operations are a key component of active forest management and are carried out whenever weather, staffing and conditions allow in order to reduce excess vegetation that can feed unwanted wildfires. During active operations, prescribed fire notifications are sent out and a map with project locations and details is posted at http://tahoe.livingwithfire.info/get-informed/. Sign up for email notifications by sending an email to pa_ltbmu@fs.fed.us.
