Avalanche Advisory Report

Back
This advisory refers to areas outside the ski area boundary. Tap icons for avalanche details. Report issued: Wednesday, April 23, 2014 8:17 AM

Wednesday
Thursday
Friday
Alpine:
Treeline:
Below Treeline:

Travel
Skier triggered size one to two avalanches are possible to likely from steep wind loaded lee features. Cornices are very brittle and should be treated with respect. Sun warming is significant at this time of year, even when it is overcast.

Activity
Soft slabs have been easily triggered from lee and cross loaded start zones. Some deeper slabs have accumulated in sheltered start zones. Cornices have grown quickly and have been very easy to trigger.

Weather
Unsettled conditions are forecast for today as a weak ridge passes. Another weak but windy front is expected to build more wind loaded slabs on Thursday.

Info
Watch out for winch-cats or snowmobile traffic if you re-enter the area after operating hours. Blackcomb Snow Safety.

What You Should Know...

Every backcountry user should be well prepared and travel with experienced backcountry users. Each member should carry an avalanche transceiver on the 457 KHz frequency and carry equipment for self-rescue.

Our avalanche advisory is updated regularly during the winter season from November through to June. Our hours of operation page has opening and closing dates and times for our winter season. Whistler Mountain's avalanche forecasters post bulletins updating the status and stability of the snow in the backcountry based on snow surveys taken from both within and outside the ski area boundaries.

Be aware that conditions may change and sometimes vary from one slope to the next.

Please Note That Backcountry Refers To Any Areas Outside The Ski Area Boundary.
This three day avalanche hazard forecast is prepared for the area immediately surrounding Whistler Blackcomb -  terrain easily accessible as a day tour from WB’s boundaries. In contrast, the Canadian Avalanche Centre posts avalanche advisories for the Sea to Sky corridor; ranging from ‘the Duffey’ to the Fraser Valley.
