Crowsnest today we found 40 cm of new snow from the weekend that was getting heavier through the day with sun and warming. No wind since the snow fell, which was a treat. We saw several small, loose avalanches from steep, sunny slopes around 2 pm. They were size 1 and didn't go deeper than the new snow. We expect more to have happened after we left too. Didn't see any new slab avalanches today. Riding was great in shady areas and sledding was good everywhere!
