Avalanche Report from Parks Canada for Glacier National Park:

Avalanche Report from Avalanche Canada for South Columbias:

Issued Thursday

“More snow in the north of the region and a bit of warming may increase the reactivity of the buried surface hoar layer. This layer is widespread, so any steep slope in open trees or the alpine should be treated as suspect, particularly where you notice slab properties.”

Alpine: Considerable

Treeline: Considerable

Below treeline: Moderate

Avalanche Report from Avalanche Canada for North Columbias:

Issued Thursday

“Be wary of incremental loading over a layer of surface hoar. Once a threshold amount of snow accumulates and forms slab properties, slab avalanches will be easy to trigger at all elevations and on all aspects. Conservative decision-making is warranted.”

Alpine: Considerable

Treeline: Considerable

Below treeline: Moderate
