Fresh snow and moderate winds could create windslabs in the alpine
Minimize overhead exposure during periods of heavy loading from wind.Use caution in lee areas. Wind loading could create slabs.
Aspects: North, North East, East.
Expected Size1 - 2
Evidence from recent snowpack tests and whumphing would suggest that a weak layer of facets persists down 20-50cm in some areas, and may be becoming reactive with incremental loading from recent small snowfalls.
Whumpfing, shooting cracks and recent avalanches are all strong inicators of unstable snowpack.Carefully evaluate big terrain features by digging and testing on adjacent, safe slopes.
Aspects: North, North East, East, North West.
