Avalanche Danger
Moderate (2)
Valid Friday, Nov 26th 4:00pm PST 14 hours ago
Until Saturday, Nov 27th 4:00pm PST

The stormy weather has temporarily passed, but the potential for human triggered avalanches remains. Hazard will increase again with the next wave of precipitation.

Storm snow from the last couple of days continues to form slabs, especially in wind exposed terrain. You'll likely find wind hammered hard slab in the alpine. 

A widespread Nov 16th Facet/Crust interface down 50-100cm appears to be bonding well, but keep a close eye on it as the snow load increases. The lower snowpack contains two older crusts that are holding strong.

Snowpack depths range from 75-180 at treeline, with alpine depths exceeding 250 cm. The deepest snowpacks are reported near Blue River and Valemount. Below 1600 m, snowpack depths decrease rapidly.

Early season hazards are very real right now, be wary of thin/shallow snowpacks where the crust isn't supportive, rocks, stumps, creeks, and other sharks could be hidden under a dusting of fresh snow.

The North Rockies field team was riding west of McBride on Wednesday, and they found isolated wind slabs 15-25 cm deep in lee slopes with the potential to produce small avalanches (see MIN post here). 

Avalanche activity may decrease with the calming weather and cooling temperatures, but slabs formed during the storm can still be triggered by a rider. 

If you are getting out in the mountains, we strongly encourage people to share observations on the Mountain Information Network.
