Moderate S -W winds have redistributed last week's storm snow into pockets of windslab on alpine and treeline lee features. These slabs overlie a melt freeze crust on solar aspects and given the right location, surface hoar on northerly aspects.
Use caution in lee areas. Recent wind loading have created wind slabs.Be careful with wind loaded pockets, especially near ridge crests and roll-overs.
Aspects: North, North East, East, South East, North West.
Elevations: Alpine, Treeline.
Expected Size1 - 2
Afternoon rain showers may warm surface crusts on lower elevation S aspects to the point of surface crust break down. Small wet surface slides may occur if this comes to pass.
Use extra caution on slopes if the snow is moist or wet.
Aspects: South East, South, South West.
Elevations: Below Treeline.
