18-February-2016: La Niña Revelstoke Ride Report

It has been raining steady in the valley and snowing steady in the hills this past week. The alpine conditions are all time for powder (with lower elevations a little schmooey). Nothing but faceshots to be had for Revelstoke residents these days as all the old tracks are filling in nicely. And boy, am I glad to have a winter again! Watch for wind scoured and windloaded slopes, keeping in mind most of the wind has been coming from the south, but that's not to say there hasn't been any crossloading. Moving forward it looks like more snow and rain in the forecast up to and through the weekend so there should be some more resets happening. The temperatures are supposed to cool to some more seasonal conditions this weekend as well. The visibility is probably going to be in and out and mostly out to he honest, but those short moments of good visibility will be well worth it. Avalanche conditions are highly variable through our region right now so I would recommend staying on the safe side until you are comfortable with the snowpack and of course always checking the up to date conditions at www.avalanche.ca
