4-February-2016 : La Niña Ride Report

Looking back, it has been an amazing week - actually an amazing winter this far! We got lucky with a big storm last week, it was a little rainy and warm for a day but it managed to cool off quickly and preserve winter on the peaks. Through the week we have received little dustings here and there and last night was a nice 15cm. Looking forward I see a little more precipitation tomorrow from the storm that is moving our way from the coast right now and this should put us in really good shape for the weekend. It almost seems like the sun might come out and shine for us as well for a few days! Avalanche conditions have definitely been tricky so it is not the time to get complacent, there have been ample observations reported of significant storm and wind slabs pulling out. The wind loading is varied and it is really important to be testing the snowpack before you get after anything big right now. Also, as always, make sure you are checking the www.avalanche.ca bulletins for the most up to date info in the area you intend to ride and we will see you up there!
