Our thin snowpack still has weak snow buried in many places. Although pit-tests continue to show that it has potential to fail (with increasingly hard force), an actual persistent slab avalanche is very unlikely without a significant new load of snow to offset the snowpack’s balance. That being said, it is not impossible that an isolated wind-loaded area exists where a buried weak layer could be triggered. It's always important to practice safe travel protocols just in case, such as exposing one person at a time to steep terrain. We will keep monitoring these layers, with hopes that a new heavy load will come before too long!
