1-4” of snow fell yesterday across the zone with westerly and southerly winds transporting it to a variety of leeward terrain. There were not any observations of cohesive or reactive wind slab yesterday, but that likely has changed overnight as the new snow settles, bonds and has continued to be blown around across the landscape. Fresh wind slabs will likely be shallow and not significant in volume, but as always could present some hazard in exposed or extreme terrain. There is also some potential for small loose dry sloughing and should be noted if riding in confined terrain or on unsupported slopes over exposure. Thin conditions, very firm surfaces and shallowly-buried obstacles will be the main hazards out there right now. Evaluate what may be lurking just beneath a new pasting of snow before committing to dropping in. Along with fresh wind slab and loose dry concerns the ongoing existence of persistent slab conditions should be also be considered. Although unlikely, the possibility of larger avalanches in isolated terrain should keep us a bit wary, especially with the addition of new snow load. A variety of crust/facet combos are present within the upper part of the snowpack and weaker loose snow can be found around most rocky and vegetated areas. A small new snow point release or wind slab that gains volume down slope may add just enough weight to tip the scales in some isolated areas.
