No avalanches from the current storm have yet been reported, but ongoing snowfall and strong wind have been forming a widespread new storm slab problem in the region. Natural avalanches are expected to have become increasingly widespread in areas that saw upwards of 25 cm of new snow by the end of the day Saturday.
Similar conditions are expected to persist through Sunday, with a further rise in temperatures expected to make slabs extra touchy while bringing wet loose avalanche concerns into the mix at lower elevations.
Increasing load as well as surface avalanches will steadily increase concern for the possibility of very large avalanches releasing on our weak basal snowpack layer.
