Snow continued into the afternoon yesterday then mostly cleared in the evening. Overnight there were a couple more periods of light snow adding up around 10cm since last report. This morning though has dawned completely clear so another bluebird day ahead on the mountain. Will be an awesome day to head up to the peak.

Snow is still expected to come in later tomorrow though and continue throughout the remainder of the outlook. So after a pretty low snowfall in Feb it at least looks like March should get off to a good start.

Avalanche Information:

All gates scheduled to open this morning, peak gates 2 & 3 at 9:30am. Please follow the ski patrol’s instructions. Annupuri peak 6am: -14.8℃, average wind NE 12.4m/s.
An intermittent overnight snowfall blanketed the mountain with about 10cm of fresh snow. A northerly wind picked up from last night and stagnated around 15 – 18 m/s in high elevations. This overnight snow & wind made some partially thick patches of snowdrifts to develop on top of the crusty surface of south facing steep slopes above 1000m. Avalanches triggered by these suddenly developed snowdrifts are to be highly considered in south facing steep slopes such as the in Osaw and the Backbowl. Cornices have also drastically developed along the ridges; they are still very unstable and could easily collapse with a slight stimulation. Consider the presence of other people below you and avoid standing on or traverse right under these cornices. Ride safe and enjoy your day.
