The recent snow sits over weak facet and crust layers. As time goes on the chance of triggering is becoming less likely, but there is lots of uncertainty as to where you could trigger an avalanche and what it will take to get it moving.
Variable wind slab development is present mainly in the alpine but also in some wind exposed treeline features. These are losing sensitivity to human triggering but will need a few days to settle out completely.
Deep persistent slabs are best managed by:
Cornices are best managed by:
A gradual increase in wind values beginning Sunday afternoon will result in sustain strong winds at upper elevations. Wi will likely see an increase in cloud cover Monday and light precipitation by Tuesday. A slight warming trend will begin early Monday with valley bottom temperatures climbing to the negative single digits.
Pockets of wind slab linger in alpine areas. Beneath the recent 40-60cm of storm snow, the snowpack structure is generally weak, consisting of facets and depth hoar. The Nov crust is present up to 2500m and ~30 cm up from ground. In areas with a deeper snowpack (Tak Falls, Stanley Mitchell, Ogden, etc.) the basal weakness is less pronounced.
No new natural avalanche activity observed or reported Sunday.
