A moderate threat means there are heightened avalanche conditions on specific terrain features. And urge boarders and skies to evaluate snow and terrain carefully.
 The CAIC says the last significant avalanche happened Sunday on Buffalo Pass. According to the Steamboat Pilot a group of skiers triggered the slide but, managed to get out safely.
