Lingering wind slabs may still be reactive to human triggers; especially in lee features below ridgetops.
Pay attention to changing conditions with elevation/aspect.Avoid wind loaded slopes below ridgetops.
Aspects: North, North East, East, North West.

Any appearance of the strong April sun can initiate a loose wet avalanche cycle. The likelihood of loose wet avalanches increases as temperatures warm through the day and/or if the sun comes out for a prolonged period of time.
Avoid sun exposed slopes when the solar radiation is strong, especially if the snow is moist or wet.Avoid terrain traps such as cliffs and gullies that increase the consequence of small avalanches.Cornices become weak with daytime heating, travel early on exposed slopes.
Aspects: East, South East, South, South West, West.
Elevations: Alpine, Treeline.
