Glacier National Park: “Pockets of wind slab are catching skiers off-guard in the alpine. Specific terrain features (ie steep, wind-loaded slopes) are failing under a person’s load.”

Below Treeline-Low

For more information see Parks Canada.

North Columbia: Issued Jan. 26 at 4 p.m., valid until Jan. 27 at 5 p.m.

Light new snow inputs over the next couple of days may form thin new wind slabs, but also obscure recently formed slabs. Raise your guard as you gain elevation and keep seeking sheltered, low density snow.

Alpine and treeline-Moderate

Below treeline-Low

South Columbia: Issued Jan. 26 at 4 p.m., valid until Jan. 27 at 5 p.m.

Recent avalanche activity has been extensive. We’re rounding the corner but it definitely isn’t open season. Raise your guard as you gain elevation and expect recent wind loading patterns to be obscured by a skiff of new snow on Monday.

Below treeline-Low
