25-February-2016: La Niña Revelstoke Ride Report

It was an amazing week that last one, no word of a lie. I think that the majority of people in the interior likely had their best pow day at one point between the last ride report and this one. Mine was on Saturday. So deep, so fluffy, so amazing. Sadly, and even with the pronounced Special Public Avalanche Warning by Avalanche Canada, the sun came out and the brains went away. Multiple avalanches occurred luckily claiming only one life and not multiple lives. I am truly hoping that this is the end of avalanche deaths for the year. Looking forward, we have high pressure remaining with us until the weekend when it looks like we will get a bit of a dusting but nothing to write home about at this point. I am hoping the models changes as we get closer to the weekend and the low picks up more moisture off the pacific than originally thought. It looks like freezing levels might shoot to the moon on Friday as well so this may set us up for a nasty crust when things decide to cool down again.  It feels like spring time in the valley here. All the main riding areas are still accessible from the main parking lots, a few patches of dirt here and there but easy to avoid. Groomers are still working full tilt and winter is not over yet. So come out and get it while you can!
