Fresh snow and moderate winds could create windslabs in the alpine and at treeline.
Use caution in lee areas. Wind loading could create slabs.Minimize overhead exposure during periods of heavy loading from wind.
Aspects: North, North East, East.
Elevations: Alpine, Treeline.
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.
Carefully evaluate big terrain features by digging and testing on adjacent, safe slopes.Whumpfing, shooting cracks and recent avalanches are all strong inicators of unstable snowpack.
Aspects: North, North East, East, West, North West.
LikelihoodPossible - Unlikely
Expected Size1.5 - 2.5
Expect loose dry avalanches out of sheltered north alpine features.
Be cautious of sluffing in steep terrain.
Aspects: North, North East, North West.
