Cornices have been growing. Be cautious of getting too close to the edge, and as satisfying as it can be to stomp on them, be aware of how knocking off a large chunk or triggering a potential windslab may effect people below you. Especially with the amount of people in the backcountry right now it is more important than ever to think about others. Keep your distance, ski one at a time, don’t drop in on each other. Carry the right gear - beacon / shovel / probe is still the minimum standard.
If you are choosing to go out despite the requests to avoid the backcountry, slow it down and keep it mellow. A shallow snowpack with plenty of obstacles means a potential for injury exists for everyone.
