Published:

Persistent weak layers of facets or buried surface hoar may be triggered, especially where the slabs are thin. Wind direction is turning to fresh breeze from N and strong gail form NW in the evening. Storm slabs may from.

New snow (slab avalanches)

Buried weak layer of new snow

Be careful in steep slopes and around terrain traps until the new snow has stabilized. The avalanche problem is generally widely distributed on any steep slope with deep new snow. Look for cohesive new snow that breaks apart or is poorly bonded to the old snow. Cracks around your skis are a typical dangersign.

Some steep slopes
Possible

Persistent weak layer (slab avalanches)

Buried weak layer of faceted snow near surface

Keep distance to each other when traveling in avelanche terrain. NB, remote triggering is possible. Make very conservative route choices, especially in unknown terrain, after snowfall and if temperatures rise. Identifying areas where the weak layer is present might be difficult and requires experience. Danger signs are whoumpf-sounds and cracking which means that you influence weak layers and should avoid avalanche terrain. However, absence of signs does not mean it is safe.

Low additional load
Isolated steep slopes
Possible
