Friday January 22nd Avalanche Canada, 17 hours ago Forecast Wheaton Whoops 1 day ago Observation A whooped out sled trail into the Tally Ho zone - still some open water in places. We saw more evidence of a natural avalanche cycle from the last storm. Above 1000m there’s widespread wind effect. We stayed away from wind loaded alpine features that looked like windslabs today. 3 photos Wheaton 2 days ago Observation A slight inversion in the Wheaton today -13c/-7c with clear skies and light variable winds. Old avalanches from the recent storm can be seen on all aspects.

Ski pen at treeline was ~10 cm, 30 cm in trees. Southerly winds increased to moderate/strong in the afternoon. Some shooting cracks observed on storm layer, but didn't really have a surface to slide on. 3 photos New zone, very different snowpack conditions 5 days ago Observation two sparate avlanches. Appeared to have started from the crest of the ridge. Both rang long (>1 km). One banked up the side of the creek channel that we were skinning up knocking over small trees. The slide appeared old (wind effected surface on both debris zones). 3 photos Saturday January 16th Avalanche Canada, 6 days ago Forecast Log cabin south observation 6 days ago Observation Saw a number of avalanche crowns on the south face of log cabin today connecting weak points in the snow pack like rocks and trees. With 12 hours of moderate wind last night we were surprised to see that there is still so much snow in the alpine. 1 photos Friday January 15th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Warm snowy day in the pass 1 week ago Observation Snowy day and it warmed up in the afternoon.

Snow tapers off inland. 25cm new in Fraser area. 3 photos Fraser Galdes 1 week ago Observation Warm temps(-1.4) and 31cm’s of new snow. Fraser glades was slow trail breaking and mellow skiing. While traveling on skis we tried skiing over very small break overs with no consequence below and did manage the occasional small loose piece of snow to break free. 2 photos Log cabin lower north face 1 week ago Observation Yesterday’s South winds made it down into the trees and affected riding in all but the most sheltered glades. Light was very flat and kept us lower down where there was more definition. Winds out of the north today picked up around 1PM and snow started falling at 2PM 1 photos Wednesday January 13th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Tutsi slide path 1 week ago Observation Top 15cm was turning to a soft slab that popped and dropped slightly at third wrist tap. 2 layers popped but did not drop at same time on third tap from elbow, on degenerating facets, at 25 cm and 31cm. See photos. -3 degrees, no wind. No cracks or avy signs while skinning. 2 photos New snow, new day 1 week ago Observation 15cm storm snow in the area since Saturday. Low density with minimal wind effect at and below treeline. It has fallen on top of previous low density snow to make for deep powder turns. In the lower alpine it has been slightly affected by the wind, but was unreactive on the terrain we skied. 3 photos New snow, new day 1 week ago Observation 15cm storm snow in the area since Saturday. Low density with minimal wind effect at and below treeline. It has fallen on top of previous low density snow to make for deep powder turns. In the lower alpine it has been slightly affected by the wind, but was unreactive on the terrain we skied. 4 photos East side turns 1 week ago Observation Skied some mellow trees on the East side of the highway. Snow quality was good and not wind affected. We dug a pit at 1260m on an East facing slope and found a reactive layer 45-50cms down (sudden planar release on easy). Found the same layer between 1000-1200m doing a couple of hand shear tests. Exploring somewhere new 1 week ago Observation A great day skiing terrain that hasn't looked appealing for a few years. Weather was a mix of high overcast and scattered cloud, temperatures warm and consistent, winds calm, zero precip. 2 photos Fraser Chutes 1 week ago Observation Avalanche observation by Andrew Crist, seen near Yukon, reported on Sun 10th Jan, 2021 10:10PM Monday January 11th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Day 2 at Fraser 1 week ago Observation Fresh snow sitting on a wind crust.
