Went up for a tour in Sparwood to see if the Surface Hoar problem would be similar to Fernie. Got up to the top of the ridge and once in open terrain we remote triggered multiple size 1 avalanches. Conclusion, PWL is very active in Sparwood

Snow conditions were: Deep powder. Weather conditions were: Cold. We rode: Mellow slopes, Dense trees, Open trees. We avoided: Alpine slopes, Steep slopes, Convex slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Whumpfing or drum-like sounds or shooting cracks.
