Until Monday, Dec 6th 4:00pm PST

Look for powder in depressions and sheltered features. Watch for reactive snow around ridges and in steep terrain.

Up to 25 cm recent snow covers a crust, which is exposed in open terrain. At treeline and above, pockets of wind slab up to 40 cm deep are found in lee features, with fun powder in protected areas and depressions.

Below the Dec 1 surface crust, the snowpack is generally well-consolidated with a few early season crusts. The mid-November crust is found down 70-150 cm with faceting below the crust; this feature disappears above 1900 m.

Snowpack depths range from 120-250+ cm at treeline and above. Below 1600m the snowpack decreases rapidly.

A natural cornice failure was reported on Friday, Dec 3. The small cornice did not trigger the slope below.

On Thursday, Dec 2, explosives triggered size 1-2 avalanches above 1800 m, with the larger (size 2) avalanches reported above 2000 m and included cornice failures triggering slopes below.

On Wednesday, Dec 1, explosives triggered size 1 loose wet and storm slab avalanches near Revelstoke.

The recent series of atmospheric rivers onslaught brought heavy precipitation, strong winds, and warm weather. Widespread and very large natural avalanche cycles were observed (up to size 3) following each wave of storms, with avalanches frequently running full path to valley bottom. No new natural avalanches have been reported since Dec 1. Hard frozen debris will likely be found in the runout of most avalanche paths.
