Avalanche conditions:

Glacier National Park:

“Happy Daylight Savings! Give your minds extra time to assess slopes for the Feb. 22 weak layer. We are into a period of lower probability/ high consequence!”

Alpine, treeline and below treeline: 2 – Moderate. Heightened avalanche conditions on specific terrain features. Evaluate snow and terrain carefully; identify features of concern. Natural avalanches unlikely; human-triggered avalanches possible. Small avalanches in specific areas; or large avalanches in isolated areas.

For more information see Parks Canada.

North Columbia and South Columbia:

“Intense sun after a stormy week is making recent snow and cornices more sensitive to failure. A buried weak layer presents a low probability/high consequence scenario that warrants a conservative mindset and terrain use.”

Alpine: 3-Considerable

Treeline and below treeline: 2-Moderate
