Avalanche Danger
Low (1)
Valid Sunday, Dec 5th 4:00pm PST 9 hours ago
Until Monday, Dec 6th 4:00pm PST

Look for pockets of powder in sheltered areas and depressions. The fresh snow is poorly bonded to the crust, be mindful that increasing winds can form new slabs.

Up to 15 cm low density snow is poorly bonded to a widespread and supportive crust. Fun pockets of powder may be found in sheltered areas and depressions. The snowpack is generally well consolidated, at upper elevations a few crusts may be found in the lower snowpack. At mid and lower elevations the entire snowpack was saturated and is now frozen and uniform.

Snowpack depths at treeline range from 50-110 cm, with alpine depths exceeding 120 cm in areas. Below 1800m, snowpack depths decrease rapidly with poor coverage in many below treeline areas.

Check out our latest Forecaster Blog here.

The last avalanche reports come from Wednesday, Dec 1, when large (size 2) natural wet avalanches failed in steep treeline features around the Highway 3 corridor near Stagleap Provincial Park. The Okanagan edge of the Kootenay-Boundary also reported evidence of a natural storm cycle up to size 2.
