GENERAL AVALANCHE ADVISORY
New snow and strong southwest winds will combine to increase the hazard during the day. Dense surface slabs could be human triggered in steep avalanche starting zones and cliff areas. In areas with poor snowpack structure humans could trigger dangerous deep persistent slabs. At the lower elevations wet slides are possible on steep snow covered slopes that receive rain.
Very large hard slabs up to six feet in depth could be triggered on steep slopes where persistent layers of weak faceted snow exist within and/or near the base of the snowpack. These dangerous slabs could be triggered on slopes that have been crossed multiple times by other riders or skiers.
Dense surface slabs up to two feet in depth could be triggered by backcountry travelers who venture into steep avalanche starting zones and cliff areas. These slabs could step down and trigger dangerous persistent deep slabs in areas with poor snowpack structure.
