Incoming snowfall amounts are uncertain.
New snow will be falling on weak layers from the dry spell. If you're seeing 20 cm or more expect avalanches to be likely.

Terrain and Travel Advice:
  • Dial back your terrain choices if you are seeing more than 20 cm of new snow.
  • Fresh snow rests on a problematic persistent slab, don't let good riding lure you into complacency.
  • Watch for fresh storm slabs building throughout the day.
Persistent Slab

There are weak, sugary facetted crystals on the crust from early February (30-50 cm down) or just above it. This problem continues to be triggered by riders daily.

Storm Slab

Snowfall amounts are uncertain. New snow is falling on a drought layer that includes crust on sunny slopes, sugary facets on all slopes, and surface hoar in sheltered locations.

Avalanche Summary

On Monday in the Monashees north of Revelstoke, one large (size 2.5) wind slab avalanche was triggered by the third rider on the slope. They were partially buried with their airbag exposed. Interestingly, no wind effect was felt underfoot in the start zone and the avalanche failed on a weak layer about 5 cm above the crust.

Additionally, several small and large (size 1-2) wind slab avalanches were accidentally triggered in the alpine by riders with no involvement.

Snowpack Summary

Weak layers of surface hoar and facets have grown during the long dry spell and are now getting buried.

Under the new snow, the alpine is generally wind-affected with a crust on slopes facing the sun. In sheltered terrain, 15 to 25 cm of snow overlies various layers including a weak layer of small surface hoar and/or another thin sun crust on solar aspects.

The widespread crust buried in early February is down 30 to 50 cm and has sugary facets on top. In most places, this crust is widespread up to 2400 m.

Weather Summary

Tuesday Night

Cloudy with 10 to 15 cm of snow. 10 to 20 km/h southwest ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature -3 °C. Freezing level 1200 m.

Wednesday

Cloudy with 5 to 10 cm of snow. 10 to 30 km/h southwest ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature -4 °C. Freezing level 1500 m.

Thursday

Mostly cloudy. 0 to 15 km/h southwest ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature -4 °C. Freezing level 1500 m.

Friday

Partly cloudy. 25 to 35 km/h southwest ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature -4 °C. Freezing level 1500 m.

More details can be found in the Mountain Weather Forecast.

Confidence: low
Forecast snowfall amounts are uncertain.
Uncertainty is due to how buried persistent weak layers will react with the forecast incoming weather.

A deep persistent slab problem remains where the near-surface crust is thin or absent.
Low-probability, high-consequence problems are best managed with conservative terrain choices.

TreelineLowLowLow
Below TreelineLowLowLow

Terrain and Travel Advice:
  • Conditions may have improved, but be mindful that deep instabilities are still present.
  • Avoid steep, rocky, and wind effected areas where triggering slabs is more likely.
  • Recent wind has varied in direction so watch for wind slabs on all aspects.
Deep PersistentSlab

A weak layer near the base of the snowpack is a concern where a thick, strong, near-surface crust does not exist. This could be at higher elevations in the alpine and in steep, rocky, open features at treeline,

Wind Slab

Wind slabs are slowly bonding, or are getting softer and less reactive due to near-surface faceting. It is still possible for the weight of a human to trigger a small wind slab avalanche.

Avalanche Summary

On Monday, natural loose dry avalanches were reported to size 1 in steep polar aspects.

Over the weekend, several wind slab and loose avalanches were reported, up to size 1.5, in steep alpine terrain, some triggered by humans, and some by the sun.

Snowpack Summary

1 to 5 cm of snow overlies wind affected surfaces in open areas and a sun crust on solar slopes.

In sheltered areas, 10 to 30 cm of settling snow sits over a frozen crust that formed in early February. This crust is generally supportive to the weight of a human below treeline, but becomes breakable around treeline, and disappears as you ascend higher into the alpine.

The midpack is generally faceted.

The bottom 15-30 cm of the snowpack consists of weak faceted grains, depth hoar, and crusts that continue to produce sporadic, large avalanches.

Weather Summary

Tuesday Night

Mostly cloudy. 0 to 5 cm of snow. 10 to 25 km/h southwest ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature around -3 °C. Freezing level rising to 1200 m.

Wednesday

Partly cloudy. 0 to 2 cm of snow. 10 to 20 km/h southwest ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature around -2 °C. Freezing level rising to 1700 m. 

Thursday

A mix of sun and cloud. 20 to 30 km/h southwest ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature around -1 °C. Freezing level rising to 1700 m.

Friday

A mix of sun and cloud. 10 to 25 km/h west ridgetop wind. Treeline temperature around 0°C. Freezing level rising to 1900 m.

More details can be found in the Mountain Weather Forecast.

Confidence: moderate
Uncertainty is due to the fact that deep persistent slabs are particularly difficult to forecast.

Expect sluffing in steep terrain and watch for exposure to cliffs and terrain traps.

Below TreelineLowLowLow

Terrain and Travel Advice:
  • Loose avalanches may start small but they can grow and push you into dangerous terrain.
  • Be cautious of buried obstacles especially below treeline.
Dry Loose

Incoming storm snow will be landing on a very firm sun crust on solar aspects and a variety of surfaces on polar aspects. Steep slopes will try to shed this new snow, which could gather significant mass below and be very problematic in terrain traps.

Wind Slab

Recent strong NE winds have created firm wind slabs in the Alpine. Though stubborn to trigger, there may be pockets of slab sitting on weak facets, waiting for the right load to set them free to flow downhill.

Avalanche Summary

No new natural avalanches observed along the highway corridor Tuesday.

On Monday, a few point-release dry sluffs were noted from steep terrain on Tupper and Macdonald.

In the past week, riders have been triggering unexpected avalanches, near ridgetop in wind effected terrain. These avalanches failed on a prominent crust down ~30-50cm. Terminal Pk & Connaught drainage

Snowpack Summary

5-10 cm of new snow freshly covers a spring like conditions. These include: soft snow in protected terrain on polar aspects, breakable crust on steep solar aspects, and variable wind slab in exposed terrain at ridge top.

A strong, supportive crust (widespread below 2500m) is down 30-50cm, makes for challenging travel and a layer for avalanches to slide on.

The mid-lower snowpack has strengthened. Isolated pockets of shallow, weak snow can be found in the high alpine.

Weather Summary

A weak disturbance this week will bring clouds, light snow, and freezing levels hovering around 1300 m.

Tonight: Cloudy/flurries, 5 cm, Alp low -5°C, ridgetop winds SW light gusting to Mod.

Wed: Cloudy/isolated flurries, Alp high -5°C, light SW winds.

Thurs: Cloudy/isolated flurries, Alp high -6°C, mod W winds.

Fri: Flurries, 5-10cm, Alp high -6°C, light/gusting mod SW wind.

Confidence: moderate
