Round Mountain Powder 4 hours ago Observation Amazing riding at Round Mountain / Red Heather today. Lots of untouched powder. We measured up to 45cm of dry powder on a pretty solid base. -10 degrees, pretty windy on exposed ridgetops, but calm in the trees. Snowing lightly the whole day, only saw a few other parties. 3 photos Tuesday November 29th Avalanche Canada, 7 hours ago Forecast Monday November 28th Avalanche Canada, 1 day ago Forecast Paul Ridge 1 day ago Observation Variable soft slabs on NE and NW sheltered aspects but no whumpfing or cracking. Where slabs had not developed on those same aspects, the 25-40cm of new snow was deep and fluffy. Sunday November 27th Avalanche Canada, 2 days ago Forecast Saturday November 26th Avalanche Canada, 3 days ago Forecast Snow Pack description 5 days ago Observation I was guiding for Canada West Mountian School. Road is almost 100% dirt to the upper lot. We kept skiis on after walking 1.1km of trail (both up and down) and encountered new snow at 1300m. Snow depth is about 80cm at the Red Heather Cabin. We dug a quick pit to ground on a N aspect at 1460m. Snow Pack description 5 days ago Observation I was guiding for Canada West Mountian School. Road is almost 100% dirt to the upper lot.

I drove up to about 1000m. 4x4 with chains could easily make it higher. There's rocks poking out of the road until about 1350m and full coverage after that. 3 photos
