The alpine has windslabs along ridgelines and in crossloaded features.
Be careful with wind loaded pockets while approaching and climbing ice routes.If triggered the wind slabs may step down to deeper layers resulting in large avalanches.
Aspects: North, North East, East, South East, North West.
LikelihoodPossible - Unlikely
Expected Size1 - 2
Deep Persistent Slabs
Thin areas should are where you could wake up the basal layers....
Be aware of the potential for full depth avalanches due to weak layers at the base of the snowpack.Carefully evaluate and use caution around thin snowpack areas.
Aspects: All aspects.
Elevations: Alpine, Treeline.
