Be careful on steep slopes and around terrain traps until the new snow has stabilized. If danger level 3-considerable, wait until the snowpack stabilizes.
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 sign.
The weak layer is sually at or close to the interface to the old snow surface. If the weakest layer is in the old snowpack another avalanche problem wil be chosen, i.e. Persistent weak layer.
