Abstract: Time series relationships between meteorologic conditions and avalanche activity were determined for controlled avalanche paths at Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, California. A forecasting model was developed using least squares multiple regression techniques to forecast avalanche activity based on the U.S. Forest Service avalanche size classification, the crown fracture height and the percentage of the avalanche path the avalanche slide.
