Mountain Snowpack: March 23, 2022  

Mid-range mountain temperatures have warmed up a bit, remaining above freezing during daytime and slightly below freezing overnight. The snowpack has lost over 2 inches since yesterday and turning the surface layer wet and sticky. Alpine areas are mostly unaffected and still offer some nice snow conditions for some fun-packed sledding. The weather forecast predicts a bit more snow over the weekend before temperatures are expected to climb well above freezing for a while.
Expect muddy, slushy, slippery trail conditions before reaching the sledding areas.

The Shuswap sledding trail maps as well as the mountain cabins and parking map are now finalized and online. The Crowfoot trail map might follow soon.

Shuswap Avalanche Danger Rating

Up to 30 cm of storm snow has blanketed the region. Fresh storm slabs exist with deeper deposits on leeward slopes. If the sun pokes out expect avalanche activity to spike. A conservative approach to terrain is a great way to ease into your day while assessing along the way.
