We are back with Dave and Backcountry Skiing Canada to deliver you our 3rd Avalanche Condition Report of the Season.
Here are some key highlights to be aware of:
- Over a meter of snowfall came down over Christmas to produce great skiing but a High Avalanche Hazard.
- Snow was low density but A LOT of it.
- Explosive control in in-bounds terrain was triggering size 2 avalanches.
- Our December 4th Melt Freeze Crust that was created during that atmospheric river is a low probability high consequence avalanche event and something to be cautious of. Avalanches initiating on this layer in the past few days have been triggered in shallow rocky start zones.
- Cold weather will stick around for a couple more days before we get the next hit of precipitation on Sunday/ Monday.
- Junior Freeski next weekend, Sleeper and Blast will be closed to the public.
As always play safe out there!
