Backcountry skiers, snowboarders and snowmobilers are only a few clicks or a call away from getting insight into avalanche potential in North Idaho.

The Idaho Panhandle National Forests updates its snow conditions forecast every Friday. Backcountry travelers should make a routine of checking the report before going out on weekends.

To reach the recorded message, call (208) 765-7323.

The report also is available on the World Wide Web at www.fs.fed.us/ outernet/ipnf/avalanche.html/
