Avalanche Problem #1
Type: 
Persistent Slab
Problem #1 Comments: 

Went ice climbing in Provo Canyon today. No avalanche hazard. Took a quick look at Timp and Cascade to see where the old snow exists. This is where we’ll get persistent slab avalanches. Cascade got a little more snow than Timpanogos and the starting zones a covered a little more than Timp except in a few of the cirques. In general though there is very little old snow below 9500 feet. On south aspects there is zero snow.

Video below shows an overview.
