General Avalanche Advisory
The avalanche danger is Moderate above 8,500 feet. Weak layers near the base of the snowpack hold the potential to produce avalanches in very steep upper elevation terrain. Small isolated pockets of more recently formed shallow wind slabs will also be possible to trigger on very steep wind loaded slopes in the highest elevations. Below 8,500 feet avalanches are unlikely.

DESCRIPTION

Weak layers buried 2-4 feet deep sit below dense slabs. The likelihood of triggering slabs at these depths is low. Whether or not those weak layers are dormant on a given slope should not change your approach. Continuing to ride one at a time and minimizing your exposure is the most effective way to manage this problem. It will remain important to approach steep upper elevation slopes with caution, as the consequences of being caught and carried is high.
