Be careful when venturing out into the backcountry this weekend. The Canadian Avalanche centre is considering issuing an avalanche warning for the North Rockies. The area stretches from Chetwynd and Prince George all the way down to McBride. The centre warns that while there is fresh snow falling in the region, there is a mixed bag of weak snow layers underneath. Warm temperatures from yesterday and today increases the potential for human-triggering. If you are snowmobiling, choose small slopes without terrain traps like gullies, cliffs and thick trees.
