The recent new snow came in as fluff. There is now lots of new snow available to be transported into alpine and treeline lee terrain features with forecast west and southwest wind in the coming days.
Avoid exposure to steep, sun exposed slopes when the solar radiation is strong.Watch for signs of instability such as recent avalanches or shooting cracks.Watch for newly formed and reactive wind slabs as you transition into wind affected terrain.
Aspects: North, North East, East, South East, South.
Elevations: Alpine, Treeline.
LikelihoodLikely - Possible
Expected Size1 - 2
Deep Persistent Slabs
Deeply buried weak layers are lingering near the base of the snowpack. These layers are most likely to be triggered from thin or variable snowpack areas or with a large load like a cornice fall.
Pay attention to overhead hazards like cornices which could easily trigger the deep persistent slab.Avoid steep convexities or areas with a thin or variable snowpack.
Aspects: All aspects.
Elevations: All elevations.
