Avalanche Danger
Moderate (2)
Valid Monday, Dec 6th 4:00pm PST 8 hours ago
Until Tuesday, Dec 7th 4:00pm PST

Avalanche danger will gradually increase in wind-affected terrain this week. There have been some reports of a localized dangerous weak layer in the Barkerville area. 

Pockets of wind slab are found in lee features at upper elevations, with fun powder in protected areas and depressions. Open areas and higher elevations are windswept and hold little fresh snow. The early December crust exists below 1800 m on all aspects and has 10-30 cm of low density snow above it.

The snowpack structure is generally strong and settled with an early season crust layer about 150-250 cm deep in the alpine. One potential exception is in the Barkerville area where there have been some reports suggesting a weak layer of surface hoar may be 50 cm below the surface. Extra caution should be taken in this area since little is known about this layer at this time.

Check out our latest Forecaster Blog here.

In most parts of the region there were no reports of avalanches over the weekend, however, one size 2 avalanche was triggered in a north-facing bowl in Barkerville. This avalanche is suspected to have occurred on a 50 cm deep surface hoar layer that our field team also observed in that area.

Otherwise, the only other recent reports are from Thursday Dec 2, when two very large (size 3) avalanches were reported in the Valemount - Blue River corridor. One failed naturally on a south aspect, and the other was triggered by a cornice collapsing on a north-facing slope. Both avalanches ran on the early season crust/facet layer that is 150-200 cm deep in this area.
