Recent observations throughout the accessible snowy terrain continue to find many areas where layers of loose sugary faceted snow exist under more dense snow. However, snow pit tests resulting in failures and propagation of fractures in these loose layers are becoming fewer and farther between. In isolated areas, these reactive layers have mostly been found between 40 to 70cm down in areas where the snowpack is generally shallow and less than ~1m. There have been no reports of recent avalanche activity, test slopes have not been found to fail, and there have been no reports of whoomphing since before the weekend. LOW avalanche danger does not mean that a human triggered avalanche failing on these deeper loose layers is impossible in isolated areas! Although unlikely, a resulting avalanche has the potential to be large and destructive.
Avalanche danger will most likely increase tonight and tomorrow as a turbulent storm drops new snow with high winds. Wind slabs will likely become the greatest concern, followed by storm slabs, and concern will once again increase surrounding the persistent deeper weak layers.
