The wildfire hazard is Moderate (as of April 18,2017) in the High Level Forest Area but as the snow melts the hazard is expected to increase due to exposed areas of dry grass. Areas of high-hazard are snow-free ditches and fields that allow for wildfires to catch easily and spread fast. Consider postponing any non-essential burning in snow-free areas until after grasses and leaves turn green.
Off-highway vehicles operating in grassy areas like snow-free ditches have a higher risk of starting a wildfire. Take the time to clean debris from your vehicle, before, after and during your ride
