With a windy and reasonably intense storm arriving Sunday reactive and widespread storm and wind slabs will develop where more than 15 or 20 centimetres accumulates. Incoming snow will cover previously scoured surfaces and old hard windslabs, as well as sun crusts on more solar aspects, and sugary facets pretty much everywhere.February's cold weather weakened the upper- and mid-snowpack. In some sheltered areas, 20-50 cm of previous snow is either faceting or sits on facets (sugary snow), and even possibly surface hoar (feathery crystals).In the south of the region, the lower snowpack is generally strong.
