Over the past couple days I’ve been able to visit a broad span of terrain and have observed a widespread layer that is worth sharing. McGinnis, Squalliwood (north of Stroller White), and Arthur (where the marker on this map is) all had a low density layer of needles about 10cm thick under surface slab layers.  [ Read More ]

I was eating lunch on Canyon Ridge off Blackerby when I observed a natural avalanche on the other side of the bowel. I suspect the avalanche was triggered by wind loaded snow. On my way up Blackerby ridge, I observed between 10 to 20 centimeters of fresh snow poorly bonded to an icy surface. I  [ Read More ]

Both entrances to Perseverance Trail look to have been hit by avalanche and landslide. Very large (guessing Relative scale 4 Destructive scale 3) avalanche came down the Sunshine path (where the Mt Juneau trail zigzags the alpine). This avalanche may have been what triggered the landslide at the end of Basin Road, blocking off the  [ Read More ]
Avalanching quite frequently and now can see where there are also mud slides along the sides of the snowy chutes. Does anyone monitor the risks of a big mud slide or avalanche coming down here?  [ Read More ]

Rumble lasted about 10 seconds. Couldn’t see because of low clouds so used sound @ 4400 block of Kanata for location. Not uncommon but not one of the large cornices to the south that can rumble much longer.  [ Read More ]

ROUTE: Ascended the summer trail starting at the 7-mile trailhead. Skinned the ridge before descending down towards the East Glacier loop. It is possible to ski all the way to East Glacier if you are comfortable skiing in dense trees. Be careful to avoid the cliffs on Thunder Mountain. Consider a different descent route then  [ Read More ]
