More detailed information about the weather: 

Very sensitive wind slabs near ridges and in all leeward terrain. It was easy to trigger these slabs with ski cuts and cornice bombs.  Based on propagation and easy of trigger, I would be very cautios about entering any large, open terrain that has been exposed to the wind right now.  The smaller slides we triggered produced enough debris to push a skier into trees  or terrain traps and bury someone.
