Avalanche Conditions Report - VIDEOThis past week has seen touchy avalanche conditions with a series of pacific storms rolling through and depositing 70-100cm of snow on top of the Dec 8 rain crust and the Dec 13 surface hoar layers. These two weak layers in the snow pack are creating scary avalanche conditions. Over the week there was a skier remote, skier triggered, and explosive triggered avalanches ranging from size 1.5-2.5, mainly running on this weaker instability.
Avalanche Canada has issued a Special Public Avalanche Warning because of these layers, you can go to avalanche.ca to read more.
Happy Holidays to everyone, if you are heading out be sure to be informed and ski conservatively. Be safe.
