Strong to extreme northeast winds have redistributed the recent storm snow and created wind slabs in exposed terrain. Expect the wind slabs to be reactive to human traffic, particularly in cross-loaded and lee terrain features near ridges.
Be aware of the potential for wide propagation.Avoid freshly wind loaded features, especially near ridge crests, roll-overs and in steep terrain.Good day to make conservative terrain choices, particularly in wind-affected terrain.
Aspects: South East, South, South West, West, North West.
