For more information see Parks Canada.

North and South Columbia: “A weak layer has reared its head as the overlying slab has matured. Human triggered avalanches are very likely right now. Avoid sharp changes in terrain shape and keep in mind it’s not always the first rider who triggers the slab.”

Alpine, treeline, below treeline: 3-Considerable
