Welcome to the Flathead Avalanche Center. Based in Kalispell, Montana, the center covers an area of approximately 3,300 km2 that includes the Flathead, Swan and Whitefish ranges within the Flathead National Forest and portions of Glacier National Park. Avalanche advisories are regularly issued by 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday. We also host on our website an avalanche conditions summary for the Kootenai National Forest provided by Kootenai NF personnel on Tuesday and Friday.

The goal of this site is to help provide the public with avalanche, snow pack and mountain weather information, as well as provide basic avalanche awareness and education. If you have a suggestion or would like to subscribe to our mailing list please do so through our Contact page. Thanks.
