Sunny skies again today and temperature are mild. Winds are calm and the view of the peaks is marvellous. Courses are groomed and will be fast this morning. Southern slopes will warm up today in the sun and be soft at noon and will get icy again just before closing.

Enjoy the sun today as the clouds will be back tomorrow with some precipitation. looking like rain or wet snow in the valley and snow up top.

************************

Backcountry travel advisory:

Temperatures are mild and hovering around 0 at 1500 m. Solar radiation will be moderate to strong on the south slopes today. The thing to keep an eye on are those heavy south faces that are waiting to come down with increased solar radiation, sharp temperature rises and or rain on the slopes. It is especially important to time traverses under South slopes early in the day or on days of cool temperatures. North Faces high in the alpine have not been receiving the same solar radiation and snow temps are still cool. Be careful of intense wind loading on the Northern aspects high in the Alpine from yesterdays wind event at ridge top. Cornices are big and will come down with the heat.

Avalanche danger will increased with any intense warming or rain. Watch solar radiated slopes, around rocks and cornices as they warm through the day.

Avalanche Danger:

Below Tree Line: Moderate

Tree Line: Moderate

Alpine: Moderate
