Avalanche forecast from Avalanche Canada for Glacier National Park for April 15 at 6:45 a.m.:
“Storm snow should soften skiing old frozen snow surfaces. Watch for storm slabs on the immediate lee of alpine ridges and exposed treeline locations”
The avalanche danger is variable and can range from Low to High. Travelling early in the day is recommended, as conditions can change rapidly in short periods of time due to daytime warming. Pay careful attention to the integrity of surface crusts formed overnight and rising air temperatures during the day. Dry slab avalanche danger may also exist during spring snowstorms
Please check Avalanche Canada for more details on conditions and snowpack.
