Recent very heavy snowfall combined with high winds have triggered avalanche warnings across the highest peaks of New Hampshire. The National Weather Service has issued the warning for backcountry area around Mount Washington, NH. The alert is for the eastern slopes including the Cutler River Drainage, which include Tuckerman and Huntington Ravines...popular areas of backcountry winter weather enthusiasts. 16-18 inches of new snow fell in the area recently, and now high winds in excess of 50mph  could trigger an avalanche. Travel and backcountry exploration is not advised in the area through the weekend, as the conditions remain very unstable. The NWS notes large, slab avalanches are possible, especially at the higher, steeper elevations. You can view webcams from the Mount Washington Observatory here.   Understand more about how avalanches form and the hazards: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HW4Q2eGvEg
