Deep Persistent Slabs
This layer becomes a concern when the melt/freeze crust breaks down with solar radiation or warming.
Be aware of thin areas that may propogate to deeper instabilites.Be aware of the potential for full depth avalanches due to deeply buried weak layers.Be aware of the potential for wide propagations due to the presence of hard windslabs.
Aspects: All aspects.
Elevations: Alpine, Treeline.
Expected Size2 - 3
Loose wet slides are a concern when with strong solar radiation.
Minimize exposure to steep, sun exposed slopes when the solar radiation is strong.
Aspects: East, South East, South, South West, West.
Elevations: All elevations.
