General Avalanche Advisory
Snow is expected to fall for the remainder of the week. The National Weather service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the area from 2pm this afternoon until 8pm Thursday. New snow is falling on a snowpack that has buried weak layers and is topped with newly formed surface hoar, near surface facets and in some south facing terrain, sun-crusts. Above 7500 feet the hazard is currently limited to isolated areas where skiers and riders have the potential to trigger slab avalanches one to three feet deep. The difficulty is in identifying where these lingering instabilities lie, although terrain in and around cliff areas remains the most suspect. As new snow accumulates and temperatures rise, new shallow soft slabs will start to develop. Although not enough accumulation is expected today for a significant surface slab problem, monitor wind loaded starting zones this afternoon if accumulation rates increase. The snowpack below 7500 feet has poor structure but avalanche activity is not expected at the lower elevations today as slopes are just starting to be loaded.
