Comments
Southeast prefrontal winds were ramping up today loading leeward slopes. Even on low elevations we were seeing evidence of shooting cracks and windslab development. Things will be getting touchy with continued winds and more new snow on the way. Be safe and watch for both sensitive cornice and wind slab development.
