The new snow yesterday coupled with strong to extreme winds loaded lee slopes primarily on the N-NE in the mid to upper terrain where topography is conducive to capturing or slowing down blowing snow. Seek out low-consequence test slopes to see if new loaded snow is sensitive and pay attention to red flags such as drummy sounding snow or shooting cracks. Always be observant for specific terrain features such as terrain traps, convex loaded slopes or slopes over exposed rock, cliff or trees. Although we have a pasting of fresh new snow on the shady aspects, the biggest danger out there right now is thin and variable conditions everywhere. Areas around the Mammoth crest and specific sheltered NE high alpine couloir features hold the deepest snow from 120-160cm while lower terrain such as the Sherwins have around 60-70cm of snow at their maximum. Snow depths drastically decrease as you descend and 15-30cm snow depth is standard in the low lying areas.
