Danger Scale Ratings:
NO RATING
1 – LOW
2 – MODERATE
3 – CONSIDERABLE
4 – HIGH
5 – EXTREME
A zone with “No Rating” can mean that there is not enough snow for a rating, or that the last forecast has expired. The daily advisory expires at Midnight. After midnight, or after the season ends, the map should show “No Rating” until a new Daily Advisory is posted by the Colorado Avalanche Information Center.

MAP DISCLAIMER – THIS IS NOT A MAP OF ACTUAL CONDITIONS
Actual observed conditions may be significantly different than the avalanche forecast map. This map is not produced by the Colorado Avalanche Information Center. This map is for planning & reference purposes only. This map is not intended for navigational use in avalanche terrain. Safe travel requires training and experience making your own snow stability assessments and terrain choices.

This map demonstrates a CesiumJS web map embedded in a “dynamic” WordPress Post, using the WordPress PlugIn I have developed. The initial 3D view, looking down 68°, is from 200 miles above the Archuleta County Sheriffs Office in Pagosa Springs, CO, (37.2694° N, 107.0098° W); the 2D view looks straight down from 300 miles up above Colorado.

  1. January 16, I switched the default base map image provider to OpenStreetMap to better define Colorado, and removed the radar overlay button.
