Strong southwest winds will transport the new snow and create shallow wind slabs during the day. Older wind slabs can be found in immediate lee features in the alpine and might still be sensitive to human triggers.
Wind slabs that are sitting on surface hoar may remain reactive to human triggers.Watch for signs of instability such as whumpfing, or cracking. Be careful with wind loaded pockets, especially near ridge crests and roll-overs.
Aspects: North, North East, East, North West.
