Avalanche Danger
Moderate (2)
Valid Thursday, Apr 22nd 4:00pm PDT 16 minutes ago
Until Friday, Apr 23rd 4:00pm PDT

Change is in the air, but remember that even short periods of sunshine combined with high freezing levels can pack a punch. Loose wet avalanches are possible on sun-exposed slopes in the afternoon. 

Steer clear of cornices from above and below.

A solid melt-freeze crust exists to the mountain top on solar slopes and up to 2000 m on polar slopes. Above 2000 m on North facing terrain, you may find dry snow and a generally well-settled snowpack. Below treeline elevations, the snowpack has been isothermal but will likely form a crust as freezing levels drop. 

Cornices are large and looming along ridgelines. They are weak and very unpredictable. 

No new avalanche reports in this region since last weekend. In the neighboring South Coast Inland, a large wet slab was reported up to size 3 and ongoing wet loose avalanches have occurred up to size 2. 

Last weekend, multiple large to very large wet slab avalanches were observed near Whistler, size 2-4. Many of these involved the full depth of the snowpack, running to the valley bottom.

 

As the weather pattern changes and the temperatures drop a decline in natural avalanche activity is likely. However, solar slopes and weak cornices remain suspect when the sun is shining. It can really pack a punch this time of year, even for short periods of time.
