Avalanche Canada trettie, Avalanche Canada


Continuously assess conditions as you gain elevation. Winter conditions persist at higher elevations.

New storm slabs could form throughout the day where precipitation falls as snow.




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

10 to 25 cm of new snow may accumulate over a crust on all aspects at higher elevations. This new snow may not bond well to the underlying crust. Below treeline rain will keep the snow surface wet or moist where snow still exists. Most below treeline terrain is already snow free.

Terrain and Travel Advice

  • Watch for fresh storm slabs building throughout the day.
  • Closely monitor how the new snow is bonding to the crust.
  • The more the snow feels like a slurpy, the more likely loose wet avalanches will become.
  • Expect shallow snow cover that barely covers ground roughness.
