Avalanche advisory

Hello this the Forest Service Utah Avalanche Center. The avalanche center has closed its doors and we have stopped issuing avalanche advisories for the season. That doesn’t mean that there are no more avalanches in the mountains, but that the money has run out and most of the staff are preparing to depart for their summer jobs. If you are headed into the backcountry for a spring tour you still need to think about avalanches. Here are a few things you can think about in order to stay safe.

wouldn't it make sense to start later & say open later?!? I do not understand this. I sent an e-mail to the center asking about how I & others can help them stay open a bit later. Just needed to vent. ahhh much better :
