ACMG Mountain Conditions Summary for the Rockies and Columbia Mountains. November 7, 2020
Note: Up to date avalanche bulletins are now being issued for many of the National Parks and can be found at www.avalanche.ca
The big warm up of last week changed things considerably with heavy rain at lower elevations, and lots of new snow with strong winds in the alpine. This resulted in a lot of snow loss at lower elevations, the melting of a many south facing/low elevation ice climbs, the formation of an ice crust in the snowpack which will be something to watch once more snow arrives, and elevated avalanche hazard up high.
