We were able to stage at the Matheson turn-off and had good snow coverage most of the way with short sections of dirt. We started out around 10:00 and the surface was still firm from a good overnight refreeze. 2 photos Wednesday April 14th Avalanche Canada, 6 days ago Forecast Warm and windy in Corbin 6 days ago Observation Warm and windy in Corbin We went looking for dry snow in Corbin and instead found that the recent new snow was heavy and moist. 3 photos Tuesday April 13th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Monday April 12th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast graupel squall 1 week ago Observation Storm snow had been sluffing far and fast on previous run but had no slab properties. Then a strong squall of graupel came in during our 2nd uptrack adding moisture to the storm snow. This was enough to give the storm snow enough propensity to propagate. Mt Fernie 1 week ago Observation Went through fairy creek up the back basin and headed SE towards the Mt Fernie you see on all the maps. Snow above 1300m was deep and fluffy, around 10-20cm snow. The wind the day prior hit around 80kmph so we were expecting and looking out for wind slabs. 3 photos Sunday April 11th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Saturday April 10th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Pure North = Dry (>1700m) @Duncan, 1 week ago Observation Great,dry pow above 1700m on N aspects.

North facing aspects had good quality, drier snow at 1700M. As we skied down the snow became heavier and we saw some wet loose avalanches. 2 photos Dry snow and cream cheese 1 week ago Observation Conditions were much better than expected; the recent snow was nice and cold on shaded aspects and got cream cheesy lower down (1500m ish) and on sun affected slopes. South West winds was definitely picking up and moving snow to lee aspects. Snow was slabbier the higher we went. 2 photos Friday April 9th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Thursday April 8th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Wednesday April 7th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Tuesday April 6th Avalanche Canada, 2 weeks ago Forecast
