A period of strong wind overnight on Saturday has created slabs in lee features in the alpine. Of note, evidence of these slabs were observed at the base of cones that are situated below couloirs. The windslabs were small in size (max size 1).
Use caution in lee areas. Recent wind loading have created wind slabs.
Aspects: North, North East, East, South East, South.
Expected Size1 - 1.5
A hard slab sitting over weak facets up to 60cm down remains a concern where found: mainly on N aspects in the alpine. We have seen a few human triggered avalanches in steep, isolated features such as moraines and glacier rolls over the past week.
Aspects: North, North East, East.
