The avalanche risk has subsided in some areas of the province; however following this weekend’s snowfall a weak snow pack is causing issues in the Monashee Mountains and North Columbia.

Back Country users are warned to watch for slab formation and reactivity in the new snow and be ready for solar radiation to promote instability on Tuesday.
