Yesterday the snow fell for most of the day bringing another 30 cm to the valley.

This morning there is another 10cm of fresh at the valley level with the snow slowly falling at 2cm/hour. The total amount of snow brought by this storm (HST) is now 1.9m at the valley level and up to 2.8m above 1300m.

The remainder of today looks like a mostly snow wit it expected to cease around early evening. Tomorrow should be a mostly cloudy day with temperatures slowly increasing.

Backcountry Advisory
The very large deposits of fresh snow will be putting stress on the weak layers from early last week. Travel in or under steep alpine terrain is not advised. In many places the snow will be too deep to ride on low angle terrain and high angle terrain should be avoided until the new snow settles.

Avalanche Hazard:
Alpine: Considerable
Tree Line: Considerable
Below Tree line: Moderate
