Today is the morning you wanna go riding. Still some low cloud over the Alps from about 1600m but the sky East of Goryu/47 and Happo is blue and the suns out. Action everywhere as everyone wants to be on the mountain especially with the minimal lift action in the later part of yesterday everyone wants to be up top first. There was some light snow from yesterday that stopped during the night so snow should have settled some since yesterday. As noted yesterday the fresh snow was slipping all over the place so be careful where you go in search of powder until things have stabilised.

Snow is still forecast through today and tomorrow so its possible the clouds will come in as the day progresses. Any change in weather will be followed by an update here. Still waiting on snow base updates from patrol so that too will be updated later on today.

There were some huge winds last night so no doubt there will be some hard blown areas and some large pockets of powder on lee-ward slopes. Be very careful on these lee-ward slopes as bonding will not have occurred with the old snow layer.


Back Country Travel Advisory (as at Jan 22):

New backcountry advisory from the team doing the Canadian Level I Avalanche Course.

Strong to extreme winds in all areas today - there was 30-50 cms of new snowfall overnight, lee-ward slopes will be much more loaded due to wind. Multiple size one to two off-piste slab avalanches have been witnessed slipping easily on the crust from two days ago and these could possibly crack down to the rain crust of January 12th causing very large slab avalanches. Travel out of marked ski areas is very strongly discouraged. New snow is sliding easily even on-piste on the sides of the runs. Be careful even on-piste in all ski areas.

Avalanche Danger Scale:

Alpine: Extreme
Tree-line: Extreme
Below tree-line: Extreme
