    Snowpack Discussion

    As the freezing level falls a new crust will likely form on all aspects and elevations.

    Snowpack height at treeline currently ranges from less than 20 cm at Mt Arrowsmith to around 50 cm in Strathcona Park to 30 cm at Mt Cain. snowpack depths are deeper only in areas where the wind has drifted it in.

    Avalanche Activity

    So far this season no avalanches have been reported on the Island. This should stay the same until we see another substantial snowfall.

    Alpine climbers looking to extend their season might be the most likely candidates to encounter the limited avalanche hazard that currently exists.

    Please consider filling out a MINreport if you are out in the backcountry.
