Assess steep lines for wind slabs before committing.
Winter conditions still exist on high north facing terrain.

Terrain and Travel Advice:
  • Small avalanches can have serious consequences in extreme terrain. Carefully evaluate your line for wind slab hazard before you commit to it.
  • Expect shallow snow cover that barely covers ground roughness.
  • When a thick, melt-freeze surface crust is present, avalanche activity is unlikely.
Wind Slab

Small pockets of new wind slab could form throughout the day at treeline and above.

Avalanche Summary

Several small wet loose and skier triggered wind slab avalanches were reported yesterday.

If you have any recent photos or observations, please submit them to the Mountain Information Network, observations are limited in the spring

Snowpack Summary

Up to 5 cm of new snow may accumulate over a crust on all aspects at higher elevations. Small pockets of wind slab could be found on north and east aspects in the alpine. Below treeline rain will keep the snow surface wet or moist where snow still exists. Most below treeline terrain is already snow free.

Weather Summary

Tuesday Night

Increasing cloud with trace amounts of new snow at higher elevations. 25 to 40 km/h southwest alpine wind. Freezing level falling to 1500 m.

Wednesday

Cloudy with up to 5 cm of new snow at treeline and above. 15 to 30 km/h southwest alpine wind. Freezing level around 1600 m.

Thursday

Cloudy with up to 5 cm of new snow at higher elevations. 10 to 20 km/h south alpine wind.  Freezing level rising to 1700 m.

Friday

Mostly cloudy with up to 2 cm of new snow at higher elevations. 5 to 15 km/h southeast alpine wind. Freezing level rising to 2100 m.

More details can be found in the Mountain Weather Forecast.

Confidence: moderate
Uncertainty is due to the limited number of field observations.

Terrain and Travel Advice:
  • Be careful with wind slabs, especially in steep, unsupported and/or convex terrain features.
  • Closely monitor how the new snow is bonding to the crust.
  • When a thick, melt-freeze surface crust is present, avalanche activity is unlikely.
  • Expect shallow snow cover that barely covers ground roughness.
Wind Slab

New wind slabs may form in the alpine throughout the day.

Avalanche Summary

No new avalanches have been reported in the past few days.

If you have any recent photos or observations, please submit them to the Mountain Information Network, observations are limited in the spring.

Snowpack Summary

Up to 10 cm of new snow may accumulate over a crust on all aspects at higher elevations. Small pockets of wind slab could be found on north and east aspects in the alpine. Below treeline rain will keep the snow surface wet or moist where snow still exists. Most below treeline terrain is already snow free.

Weather Summary

Tuesday Night

Increasing cloud with trace amounts of new snow at higher elevations. 10 to 25 km/h southwest alpine wind. Freezing level falling to 1500 m.

Wednesday

Cloudy with up to 10 cm of new snow at higher elevations. 15 to 30 km/h southwest alpine wind. Freezing level around 1400 m.

Thursday

Cloudy with up to 5 cm of new snow at higher elevations. 10 to 20 km/h southwest alpine wind.  Freezing level around 1500 m.

Backcountry travel in this region is likely challenging due to a surface crust and limited coverage below treeline.

Terrain and Travel Advice:

If you have any recent photos or observations, please submit them to the Mountain Information Network, observations are limited in the spring.

Snowpack Summary

Up to 3 cm of new snow may accumulate over a crust on all aspects at higher elevations. Small pockets of wind slab could be found on north and east aspects in the alpine. Below treeline rain will keep the snow surface wet or moist where snow still exists. Most below treeline terrain is already snow free.
