Around 15 to 25 cm of snow fell at higher elevations in the region, with north west winds. Watch for signs of poor bonding of the new snow with underlying surfaces.
Use caution in lee areas in the alpine and tree line, especially east facing slopes.Observe for signs of instability, such as cracking, whumpfing, and avalanche activity.Keep an eye out for localized areas of deeper snow accumulation, particularly on eastern slopes.
Aspects: All aspects.
Elevations: Alpine, Treeline.
LikelihoodLikely - Possible
Expected Size1 - 2
High freezing levels and recent rain have moistened the snowpack at lower elevations. Use caution in terrain features where a small avalanche could have serious consequences.
Avoid terrain traps such as gullies and cliffs where small avalanches can have high consequence.Watch for signs that the snow is moistening such as pin-wheeling and point-releases below cliffs.
Aspects: North, North East, East, South East, South.
