The forecast was spot on and the third day of the long weekend is bluebird with nice cold temperatures. Nicely groomed slopes with a lot of people on them same as yesterday watch out for skiers putting in erratic turns and beginner boarders cooling their behinds.

Perfect day to end the long weekend with fantastic groomers and amazing views. Traffic out of town will be nuts today, be careful on the roads.

Clouds forecast to move in tonight with snow flurries overnight/tomorrow.

Backcountry Travel Advisory:

Blue skies and crowded ski-fields will mean a lot of people hiking today. Pick conservative lines and use good group control and safety measures. There are still multiple shear layers in the upper 1 m of the snow pack that may propagate and create avalanches in steep moderate and complicated terrain. Alpine bowls and chutes with big consequences should be avoided or reassessed for stability. Do not get fooled by the Ice Crust of January 12 as it is still a lingering week layer and faceting around this layer is prominent and depth hoar has also been found around this layer in multiple areas. Shear and compression tests have found moderate results on this layer and the shear plane is very clean and could produce problems so do assess stability of this layer before jumping in.

Take due care out there and take mellow lines in simple terrain.


Avalanche Hazard as of Feb 6th:

Alpine: Considerable

Tree line: Considerable

Below Tree Line: Moderate
