Special Public Avalanche Warning

A Special Public Avalanche Warning has been issued by Avalanche Canada ahead of the expected warm weather this weekend throughout BC. It will remain in effect through Monday, May 1.

Location: Mountain ranges throughout the West

Warning Issued: April 27, 2023

Backcountry users across western Canada are being warned to expect dangerous avalanche conditions, as winter transitions to spring and temperatures dramatically rise in the coming days.  And workers and recreation seekers are being advised to leave a wide margin for error during this seasonal transition.

Avalanche Canada warns that each day of warm air will increase the level of danger that currently exists for all mountainous regions across the west.

“Stick to simple, low angle terrain and avoid all overhead avalanche hazards,” Avalanche Canada advises.
