Avalanche Forecast for Sunday, January 26, 2020

Drifted snow may release naturally today in the steepest terrain and may entrain enough snow to push you into the rocks and terrain traps that exist in our sparsely covered slopes. These wind slabs are likely to avalanche from human triggers. Steep slopes should be approached with caution. Limit time spent in avalanche paths such as the floor of Tuckerman Ravine. Evaluate the snow and terrain carefully today and be cautious in your route-finding. CONSIDERABLE avalanche danger exists today.

Even small avalanches today have the potential to become large avalanches by stepping down and into wind slabs formed Jan 13 - 16.  Watch for terrain traps and keep in mind a small manageable slab could become a larger problem.
