The avalanche danger will rise to the high end of MODERATE on all steep sunlit slopes with daytime warming. The steep east to south to west facing terrain is to be avoided by the time it becomes damp and unstable, usually in the mid-morning to mid-afternoon hours. Pockets of MODERATE exist for lingering wind drifts in the steep exposed alpine terrain. Cornices have become gargantuan and unruly - take particular care along and beneath cornice-littered ridgelines.
