Digging a Test Pit
We received over a foot of new snow over the range with some higher winds the last few days. Winds and new snow added to an already weak snowpack = High Avalanche Danger. New wind slabs were undoubtedly formed during the wind event and were subsequently buried .
Now can be a good time to look for those by digging a little bit . Be extremely careful to maintain your personal safety when digging to look at windslabs though! Stay out of start zones on lower angled or no-consequence slopes.
