Surface faceting over previous wind effect in the ALP and TL lee and cross loaded features. This overlies a faceting and weakening mid-pack bridging basal facets and depth hoar.
No new avalanches observed or reported
Avalanche activity has tapered off but human triggered avalanches are still likely.
- Avoid exposure to overhead avalanche terrain, large avalanches may reach the end of run out zones.
- If triggered the wind slabs may step down to deeper layers resulting in large avalanches.
Deep Persistent Slabs
Numerous avalanches were observed throughout the region that failed to ground. Activity has tapered off but may be waiting for the human trigger.
- Use caution on open slopes and convex rolls
- Be aware of thin areas that may propogate to deeper instabilites.
