Avalanche danger is high across Montana, with the addition of new snow and weather systems moving across the state. People recreating outdoors are advised to use caution and stay up to date on the avalanche dangers in their area.

There are three regional Avalanche Centers in Montana. Their work provides quality and timely forecasts, education and materials to meet a growing user base both of local recreationist and visitors from outside Montana.

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks provides funding for all three avalanche centers in Montana through Recreational Trails Program (RTP) funding. This can include supporting innovative approaches like the free community avalanche awareness and safety classes in Cooke City, Montana:
