In response to COVID-19 and the temporary suspension of many of Parks Canada’s visitor services, public avalanche bulletins will no longer be issued for the remainder of the 2020 spring season. This is a time to avoid the backcountry. Please stay home to help limit the spread of COVID-19, and to minimize demands placed on emergency response teams and the health care system.
Deep persistent slabs are best managed by:
Cornices are best managed by:
Friday: Cloudy with isolated flurries. West wind 50km/h gusting to 70. Freezing level 1600m.
Saturday: Cloudy with wet flurries. Moderate SW wind with strong gusts.
Sunday: Cloudy with wet flurries. Moderate SW wind with strong gusts. 5 cm snow accumulation.
5-10 cm of storm snow has been redistributed by Moderate - Strong SW winds. This has created fresh windslabs which sit over a melt freeze crust on all but North aspects. The mid pack is strong and well settled. Basal instabilities haven't been seen in some time, but are likely lurking in thin areas.
Avalanche activity in the last week has mainly been limited to loose wet avalanches up to size 1 on solar aspects with daytime warming.
