Monday April 19th Avalanche Canada, 1 day ago Forecast Garibaldi Summit 2 days ago Observation Cornice dropped on the pyramid shaped peak on the boundary of the Provincial Park. Ran maybe 100m, some bigger debris but mostly small. Avalanche not where pin shows. 2 photos Sunday April 18th Avalanche Canada, 2 days ago Forecast Saturday April 17th Avalanche Canada, 3 days ago Forecast North summit Strachan 4 days ago Observation Spontaneous release of a 1.5 wet loose avalanche was observed on the southern slope of the summit of North Strachan. Any thoughts of entering Christmas gully were quickly banished. Callaghan 4 days ago Observation Toured up to 2000m today. Everything except north facing slopes were spicy. Natural point release avalanches littered the alpine. The two south facing slopes we crossed (quite quickly) produced point release and some small size 1s. 1 photos Friday April 16th Avalanche Canada, 4 days ago Forecast Thursday April 15th Avalanche Canada, 5 days ago Forecast Rutherford Far & Wide 6 days ago Observation Not a cloud in the sky as we explored the Rutherford far and wide. We recorded a high temperature of +4 C at 1800 m, but the strong solar and warm temps had surprisingly little effect on the snowpack, even steep south faces only produced isolated small avalanches to size 1. 4 photos Wednesday April 14th Avalanche Canada, 6 days ago Forecast Pelion Ski Tour 1 week ago Observation Below zero degrees in the alpine until early afternoon. Lots of recent natural activity on south/west slopes 3 photos Tuesday April 13th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast 2021-04-13 Avalanche in North Shore BC 1 week ago Observation I unfortunately do not know how to answer many of the questions above. Just wishing to report an avalanche witnessed around 10:10am on April 13, 2021 at the Lions Bay/North Shore mountain area of BC. My name is Jennifer Chamberlain and I can be reached at 778-870-3791, if needed. 1 photos Rainbow Mountain 1 week ago Observation Beautiful day on Rainbow. Skied the Northwestern face towards Beverley Lake. We saw evidence of a widespread natural cycle of Loose Dry, slab and cornice avalanche from the past 24-48 hours. Most snow was crusty or wind effected with some pockets of powder to be found. Monday April 12th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Journeyman 1 week ago Observation Saw several natural size 1-1.5 wind slabs in the alpine on northerly aspects, likely from yesterday (April 10). Minor sluffing on short steep pitches. In some treeline areas there were slab properties over the recent crust, but we didn't see any cracking or cookies when skiing over convexities. Deep spearhead 1 week ago Observation ESE aspect between Angelo and Benvolio. Large wind slab Na trigger. Massive propagation. Suspect crown depths up to 80cm. N aspects deep with extremely fast slough. Found spooky stiff 1 finger slab 40-50cm down on Fa at top of Mount Chekamus at ridge top. 1 photos Serratus Sunday 1 week ago Observation Usual things pulled out. We stuck to north facing slopes. Anything in the sun got toasted and wet. Looks like lots of natural size ones yesterday as the storm settled. Today saw one skier triggered slab. Skier lost their ski but was okay. It was a steep long slope. 2 photos Anif Peak 1 week ago Observation Surprisingly great snow quality on north facing slope off Anif Peak. Some crust on more sun-exposed ridgeline. Cloudy enough that things didn't get too warm. Saw what looking like a minor skier triggered sluff from Saturday. No whumfing but sun was starting to warm things when we left (2pm). 1 photos Mulligan Mt., 1 week ago Observation Skied mellow slopes NW off Mulligan. Did two quick hand sheers at the ridge; one where the new storm snow "popped out" but was broken, the other showed recent storm snow was bonding fairly well. Sunday April 11th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast St Marks 1 week ago Observation A nice Saturday on St Marks! It stayed cold but the sun was so powerful that it melted any snow on S and W faces features leaving a crust by end of day. We were able to release sluffs on convex features but did not observe avalanche activity. Grizzly lake 1 week ago Observation First skier ski cut and skied safely. Second skier tested slope before dropping in producing result. Escaped near top of slide path. 2 photos Sproatt Avalanche 1 week ago Observation There was ~20cm of new snow and it was quite warm which bonded the snow. 1 skier caught in the avalanche and swept off feet but regained footing after a couple of seconds in the avalance and skied out. No injuries. 1 photos Brandywine backside 1 week ago Observation Observed riders triggering small <1 slides off steeper knolls. Probably storm snow from Fri eve.One rider triggered the deeper layer probably from the storm on Tues. Got partially buried and self extracted himself. Snow was very deep in some spots 1 photos Cloudburst 1 week ago Observation The day was mostly sunny, with a few storm clouds that rolled through and dropped less than 1cm of graupel on us. 1 photos Saturday April 10th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Friday April 9th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Watersprite Basin 1 week ago Observation We found 20-40 cm of storm snow in moderate north facing terrain that was low density and primary sluffing in the morning but as the temperatures warmed up and more precipitation moved in storm slab started to form and become reactive throughout the basin.
