Avalanche Canada trettie, Avalanche Canada


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

Forecast confidence is limited this time of year due to few observations.




Avalanche Summary

Small natural wind slabs were reported in the region on Sunday. Observations are very limited in this region.

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.

Terrain and Travel Advice

  • Be carefull around freshly wind loaded features.
  • When a thick, melt-freeze surface crust is present, avalanche activity is unlikely.
  • Expect shallow snow cover that barely covers ground roughness.
