The 3-4" of new snow that fell created small wind drifts and slabs that were reactive to my weight. Most of these slabs were less than 6" thick, but were reactive on steep slopes.
Mild temperatures to start the day, with light snowfall beginning around 10:30. Temperatures slowly decreased through the day. Winds blowing at light to moderate speeds with periodic short gusts in the strong range, first out of the W/SW, then switching around to NW as the day ticked by.
We triggered some D1 sluffs and thin wind slabs involving the new snow. No other avalanche activity observed.
The combination of 6-10cm of new snow and variable winds were enough to build some very small, sensitive wind slabs. The thickest slabs we encountered were in the 15-20cm range, though only the upper portion of these were reactive. It appeared that the very small slabs we were able to trigger were failing on a density change/crystal change within the new snow. Dry loose sluffs and small slabs that we triggered were able to pick up speed quickly as they traveled downslope, thanks to the dense, older snow surface underneath, though it seemed like you needed to be on a slope approaching about 40 degrees to make this happen.
We also encountered quite a few older, stiffer slabs that were unreactive. These were variably distributed and P hard. We avoided them for the most part, to limit hazard and for ease of travel.
The new snow didn't create a single, well-defined avalanche problem, but we were mindful of small wind slabs and dry loose sluffing..
We exercised caution around wind-loaded areas and in steeper, rockier terrain where the consequences of being caught in a small slide were high. We avoided one very steep slope that had a recent wind slab.
