Avalanche Danger
Moderate (2)
Valid Wednesday, Jan 26th 4:00pm PST 8 hours ago
Until Thursday, Jan 27th 4:00pm PST

Wind slabs remain reactive to human triggering in exposed high elevation terrain. There is ongoing concern for the early-December deep persistent problem and we are now in a low probability, high consequence scenario with this layer. 

The snow surface is highly variable and consists of a crust at lower elevations and on solar slopes into the alpine, wind affected surfaces and wind slabs in exposed terrain, and settling powder in sheltered areas on polar aspects. Ongoing surface hoar growth up to 10 mm has also been reported in sheltered areas which is expected to be most prominent at elevations near the top of the valley fog layer.

The top 50-100 cm of the snowpack has a variety of persistent layers that may or may not remain a problem. The most recent snowfall covered a layer of surface hoar which is now down 20-30 cm. A layer of facets and surface hoar from early January is now down around 40-60 cm. The layer of facets from the end of December is now down close to 1 m. 

The primary weak layer that remains a widespread concern across the Columbia Mountains is a deeply buried crust/facet layer that formed in early December. It is typically down 100-150 cm, but as deep as 200 cm in wind-loaded terrain. There has been regular avalanche activity on this layer at all elevations for over a month, but we are now seeing decreasing evidence since the recent warming event.

On Tuesday, a variety of natural wind/storm slabs up to size 2 and cornices up to size 3 were reported but most of this natural activity had occurred on Monday or Sunday.

On Monday, wind slab avalanches on cross-loaded lee slopes produced natural avalanches up to size 2. A size 2.5 glide slab released near Revelstoke on south alpine slope due to strong solar input. Explosive control triggered a deep persistent size 3 avalanche in the Monsahees, with a fracture line of 120 cm deep.

Around Silverton area, a natural size 3 avalanche was reported Sunday on steep alpine feature. The failure was down to 100-150 cm the December facet/crust layer and ran full path. See the MIN report here. 

Over the past week, numerous very large (size 2.5-4.5) deep persistent slab avalanches occurred in both the Selkirks and Monashees. These avalanches failed on the early December facet/crust layer, typically 100-150 cm deep. This layer is likely to plague our snowpack for the remainder of the season and will be a low probability but extremely high consequence result if triggered.
