Kootenay Boundary Avalanche Report Dec 05
View the full report here:
Cold temperatures and clear skies with light to moderate North East and East winds on Sunday. Weather models suggest this cold dry pattern will remain for the next week (or longer).
The snowpack should be settling and will have strengthened with the colder temperatures. There is a crust from the last warming cycle now buried around 15-30cm. In some places the surface snow has probably been blown into a windslab on exposed steep features. Otherwise the current cold temperatures will be creating surface facets and surface hoar. The surface hoar is already up to 12 mm near Nelson. They'll give us good riding while on the surface but once buried could become a problem - but that's next week's story.
