This morning is beautiful, blue skies after a big snowfall yesterday. The only other thing to ask for is an empty slope, but unfortunately today that is not going to happen. Be careful on the busy slopes today, it can get hectic. Enjoy the sunshine, there are light winds which shouldn't effect any lifts and clouds should start to roll in a bit later this afternoon. More snow is due to fall tonight.

Temperatures today will be warm, so make sure you have your sunscreen.


Backcountry advisory update:

Huge amounts of heavy wet snow overnight has pushed up the avalanche danger scale. With the new snow sitting on the sun crust from yesterday and ice layer from the high winds it is quite likely on steep sun-facing aspects for natural triggered avalanches to occur and even on moderate slope angles human triggered slides are probable. Travel in the back country is NOT advised today.

Avalanche Danger:

Below Tree Line: Considerable

Tree Line: Considerable

Alpine: High
