Kootenay National Park
We drove through Kootenay National Park this morning and saw numerous large avalanches that looked like had initiated during the rain event yesterday.
Along the divide at high elevations there were numerous slabs on fans below cliffs and in gullies, size 2-3. Most had been triggered by loose snow avalanches initiating higher up, or by cornice falls. Many of the slabs were initiating low on the slope.
At lower elevations there has been a loose wet avalanche cycle with about 80% of avalanche terrain in the burnt forest having run to size 3.
Temperatures along 93S were above freezing by 9.30 AM.
Nice mountain biking weather in Radium right now.
