Avalanche Danger
Moderate (2)
Valid Sunday, Nov 22nd 5:00pm MST 19 hours ago
Until Monday, Nov 23rd 5:00pm MST

Potential still exists to trigger wind slabs on steep alpine features like convex roll overs and couloirs. Conditions appear to be improving but step out with forethought and careful consideration.

Wind slabs present at treeline and above from W-SW winds. At treeline 20-50 cm of storm snow sits over a layer of preserved stellars. The Nov. 5 facet/crust combo is down 50-80 cm and producing variable test results from easy to hard. The Nov crust extends up to 2500 m on N aspects and higher on solar aspects. Snow depths at treeline are 50-130 cm.

Today's field team, was near Bow Summit today. No avalanches were observed or reported in that area. Sunshine ski patrol, however, did report a size 2.5 avalanche that ran near the ground, likely yesterday, but was observed today. Control work at Sunshine produced avalanches up to size 1.5, in the form of wind slabs.
