Large snowfall yesterday with snow all day piling up high and half-burying cars wherever you looked; fantastic conditions however you like your snow. Personally we like it light and fluffy in the trees and that's where we'll be today as conditions here are to put it lightly OFF THE HOOK.

Today is overcast with some very light snow falling, snowmen on the radar screen all week with tomorrow night looking like old Frosty will be ripping out his biggest wet-white-fart of the week.

As always if heading into the BC, only do so if you have all the necessary equipment, the knowledge and experience how to use it and friends with the same. Current points of concern:

*Heavy snowfall
*Rapid increase of weight on snow pack
*Suffocation by falling face first in too deep powder
*High danger of falling snow from rooves
*Surface avalanches in new snow due to underlying grauple layer
*Increased snowfall adding load to buried week layer
*Cornice fall
*Increase in loose snow avalanches and sluffs
*Falling tree bombs (Possible triggers and cause of avalanches as well as overhead hazards)
*Increased caution advised around rocky outcroppings, cliffs and well spaced trees in start zones.
*Development of cornices in lee slopes
*Lee side loading
*Due caution on cross loaded slopes
*Poor bonding at or around buried crust
*Wide propagation due to wind slab
*Stay away from steep and convex terrain
