General Bulletin for Sunday, May 1, 2016

…but wind slabs may develop as winds ramp up and shift west and precipitation grows in intensity and the freeze line drops in elevation as forecasted for Monday. New snow may also cover and hide crevasses. Be sure to evaluate the avalanche hazard Monday and Tuesday, especially if snow fall totals in our start zones reach those forecast by the Observatory for the summit. Hollow sounding slabs or large smooth pillows in steep terrain should be given some time to settle after spring temps return.
