Yesterday was a stunner with some high cloud hanging around the peaks but blue skies for the first time and powder still to be found. Cloud was hanging low still last night but had dissipated by this morning.

Another bluebird day today with -7 degree temperatures in the valley and the peaks out in force. Good to get some nice views for the first time in a week. University tour busses have rolled into town so expect a lot erratic skiers and watch for obstacles in the form of snowboarders sitting/sprawling in random places but otherwise groomers will be sweet...

Avalanche Danger Scale:

Below Tree Line: Low

Tree Line: Moderate

Alpine: Considerable

Backcountry Travel Advisory as at Feb 17th:

High amounts of steady wind and snow on Saturday night has increased the likelyhood of natural and skier triggered avalanches. Wind transport of snow (cornices and snow drifts) is present and frequent in both south and north faces. Sluffing on steeper terrain is still a possibility so avoid passing under chutes/avalanche paths. North facing slopes that were not overly wind loaded were stable at lower slope angles, but on slopes above 40 degrees one could expect sluffing and slides on areas of tension (convexing rollers etc.)
