By early afternoon on 4/19/23 the three feet of new snow was easily avalanching and running long distances with large volume. Video from Test Face/Lower Nose.
The new snow slid easily on steep slopes, mostly dry loose avalanches, but by the afternoon these were entraining large, dangerous volumes of snow. Video is from this morning, small test slope at 6,300', north facing. Now there is a lot more snow, and much more at higher elevations. It snowed heavily all day. Wind was moderate on the ridge, calm with moderate gusts below the ridge, and moderate/gusty on the lower half of the mountain.
Large avalanches of new snow will be easy to trigger for the next few days, and large natural avalanches are possible. Conditions will continue to become more dangerous if heavy snow continues.
