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. 

10-30 cm of low density snow covers a supportive crust which has been found as high as 2400 m. Winds have exposed the crust in open areas and built wind slabs in leeward terrain. Loose snow persists in protected areas and depressions. 

The snowpack is generally well-consolidated below the surface crust. The mid-November crust is found down 70-150 cm with some faceting below the crust. This feature disappears above 1900 m and does not appear to be problematic at this point.

Snowpack depths range from 100-250 cm at treeline and above. The snowpack decreases rapidly below 1600 m.

For an in depth look into the recent weather, current snowpack and our thoughts for the future visit the Forecasters' Blog.

Avalanche activity over the weekend was limited to a few small dry loose avalanches and one larger wind slab. This avalanche was naturally triggered on a wind-loaded alpine slope northwest of Revelstoke.

Last Thursday and Friday, there were a few very large deep persistent slab avalanches in the northern edge of the region near Blue River and Kinbasket Lake. These avalanches occurred in steep rocky north-facing terrain and failed on a deeply buried crust layer. One of the avalanches was triggered by a cornice collapse.

There is still visible evidence of a widespread avalanche cycle from the Dec 1st atmospheric river.
