Wednesday April 21st Avalanche Canada, 12 hours ago Forecast Spring variability on Big Kahuna 1 day ago Observation Air temperatures were cooler today than the past few days, and broken clouds reduced the intensity of solar effect on the snow. Evidence of the recent warm temperatures was widespread, with numerous recent natural loose wet avalanches on steep solar aspects. 5 photos Monday April 19th Avalanche Canada, 2 days ago Forecast Saturday April 17th Avalanche Canada, 4 days ago Forecast Friday April 16th Avalanche Canada, 5 days ago Forecast Plan B 6 days ago Observation A lack of confidence in the South Klondike highway led to cancelled ski touring plans, so I went for a look around the Wheaton instead. Several avalanches observed on the way down the Annie Lake road, but once in the 'wheaton proper' no avalanche activity observed. 1 photos Wheaton avalanche tour 6 days ago Observation The Wheaton hasn't been through a widespread natural cycle, but at its thinnest extent (W side of Grey ridge, and Northeast end of the valley) there is significant avalanche activity from steep and rocky start zones. Wednesday April 14th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Monday April 12th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast East side tour 1 week ago Observation Explored a few areas on the east side via the Big Y valley. We were pleasantly surprised to find a lot more good snow than we thought we would! It seems that the strong north winds from friday saturday didnt affect too much the area. 3 photos Short Sunday window 1 week ago Observation No signs of recent avalanche activity but plenty of hard slabs lurking around in the Paddy Peak zone. -28 in the morning, -2 in the afternoon as winds switched over from north to very strong south at ridge top with lower elevations also heavily affected. 3 photos Fraser Chutes 1 week ago Observation Plan A was to ski Big Kahuna but as we worked our way to Bryant lake the visibility started to deteriorate and the wind picked up. Blowing strong and lake level and ripping off the ridges of Fraser peak. We tucked tail and headed to Fraser chutes. 1 photos Saturday April 10th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast January in April? 1 week ago Observation Today we went to investigate the reactivity of new windslabs on solar aspects. We linked up low consequence pieces of terrain to travel up into Fraser chutes today. The past 36hrs of NE wind had found its way into most if not all places. Travel was very variable. 3 photos Chilkoot Notch 1 week ago Observation 16cm overnight and 258cm snowpack depth at the Fraser weather station. Strong NE winds at tree line and reactive windslabs were the story of the day. The NE winds were moderate in the alpine, a relief from the wind apocalypse of the tree line world. 3 photos Friday April 9th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Dust on crust. 1 week ago Observation A warm and very damp day with limited visibility and overcast skies. Light south east ridge top winds beginning at 1300. Snowing lightly with 2cm accumulation through the day. Temps were -6c in the morning and warming to -3c. 2 photos
