One of the most important thing you can do before heading out into the wilderness is to be prepared by checking the conditions of the trail, the road to the trail and the weather expected that day.  Although you should always be prepared for adverse conditions, knowing the forecast often means making better choices.

It can often mean the difference between life and death.

Here are a few of the websites I check when doing my planning and before heading out the door.


NW Avalanche Center

US Forest Service

WTA Trip Reports
