Tuesday April 20th Avalanche Canada, 22 hours ago Forecast Monday April 19th Avalanche Canada, 1 day ago Forecast Sunday April 18th Avalanche Canada, 2 days ago Forecast Farnham 3 days ago Observation 2 warm days at Farnham but still good dry snow on north slopes. Unfortunately each day the crust was creeping higher and by midday Saturday only above 2200 m was still good. Everything else crusted overnight and gradually melted during the day. 3 photos Saturday April 17th Avalanche Canada, 3 days ago Forecast Friday April 16th Avalanche Canada, 4 days ago Forecast Thursday April 15th Avalanche Canada, 5 days ago Forecast Can you say cornice fall... 6 days ago Observation Avalanche observation by ridinpow, seen near Purcells, reported on Wed 14th Apr, 2021 12:30PM 2 photos Wednesday April 14th Avalanche Canada, 6 days ago Forecast Tuesday April 13th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Monday April 12th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Sunday April 11th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Meachen burn 1 week ago Observation Snow quality is still surprisingly good at upper elevations with 20-40 cm of heavy powder above a widespread crust. Near ridgetops the snow is a bit stiffer with signs of stubborn wind slabs. 3 photos Ruedi's North, Molars North and Repeater ENE 1 week ago Observation 15 cm overnight with moderate to strong wind from the south made for easily 30-40cm ski penetration in the sheltered north facing features of Ruedi's and Molars. 20-25 cm over the suncrust on the solars we climbed. 3 photos Pudifin powder 1 week ago Observation There was 10-30 cm of fresh snow above crusts in Hellroaring, with the deepest deposits on shaded aspects. 3 photos Saturday April 10th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast T1 South 1 week ago Observation Skier on T1 south just after it was opened triggered a size 1.5 loose avalanche in bounds. He lost a ski and was carried 30m or so before coming to a stop just above a concerning cliff band. Be careful out there folks! New snow seems pretty reactive.
