Avalanche Danger
Considerable (3)
Valid Thursday, Feb 25th 5:00pm MST 13 hours ago
Until Friday, Feb 26th 5:00pm MST

Explosive control work Wednesday found slabs were reactive in the alpine and into  treeline. Consider human triggering of these slabs to be likely.

5 to 10cm of new snow arrived with strong winds Thursday contributing to the wind slabs above the February 19 interface created by 50cm of snow combined with extreme west winds over the weekend. Now down 60 to 90cm,  facets buried Jan 27 provide weak support for the upper snowpack and have been entrained as avalanches gouge down to them.

Wednesday, explosive triggers continued to easily release large avalanchesrunning to the bottom of their paths. This includes large avalanches on Mt Field and Mt Dennis. Results in the Simpson area were limited due to less wind in the area. A skier accidental sz 1.5 on the SW slope between Wolverine and Purple bowl  was reported late Wednesday.
