Avalanche rating in the North Rockies is High

Following the latest avalanche death in Tumbler Ridge Saturday, snowmobilers are again reminded of the current dangers.

The Canadian Avalanche Centre has issued a rating of high in alpine areas and considerable in and around the treeline.  The Centre is warning people in the area of the North Rockies that although the weather is beautiful, don’t be drawn into making inappropriate terrain choices.

The Avalanche Centre says they have limited observations from the region, but there are several reports cornice failures and natural slab or loose-snow avalanches large enough to bury or kill a person. Rapid and significant warming early this week likely triggered this activity.   Expect similar activity to continue for at least the next few days under sunny and warm conditions.
