Bottom Line: Conditions are generally stable and large avalanches are unlikely. The primary concern is a weak layer 12-18” under the surface. While this weak layer is widespread it is only unstable in isolated areas where wind drifting has capped it with a dense slab of snow. Keep your eyes open for signs of instability and keep adhering to safe travel practices as insurance in case you get surprised by an isolated instability.
Primary Problem: Persistent Weak Layer
