Valid Sunday, Apr 11th 5:00pm MDT 19 hours ago
Until Monday, Apr 12th 5:00pm MDT

Lingering wind slabs may remain reactive to human triggers on lee features below ridgetops treeline and above. Expect natural wet loose avalanches to occur on solar aspects if the sun comes out. 

10-30 cm of recent snow may have formed isolated pockets of wind slab on leeward slopes and behind terrain features. The new snow sits on a series of melt-freeze crusts on all aspects below 1900 m and southerly aspects to mountain top. Reports indicate snow is bonding well at these interfaces.

Recent warm weather is expected to have promoted bonding around widespread crust layers formed over the last month in the mid to upper snowpack. One widespread crust from mid-March found 30-60 cm deep saw isolated instances of large solar-triggered slab avalanches during the last sunny period. The early November crust is buried down 180-200 cm with faceted crystals above and below it. These persistent weaknesses are definitely worth keeping in mind heading into the next big warmup.

Natural and skier controlled wind slabs have been stubborn to trigger and limited to size 1. 

On Thursday, a significant natural cornice failure triggered a persistent slab from the slope below size 3. This occurred on a high alpine steep east-facing slope. This is an important reminder to stay well back from ridgetops that may be corniced and avoid slopes with overhead cornice exposure especially under the current conditions where recent rapid growth and daytime warming has made them large and fragile.
