Avalanche Warning For Southeast B-C

South-eastern B.C:    If you are heading out to the mountains for some recreation this weekend, you need to be aware the Canadian Avalanche Centre has issued a warning for South-eastern B.C.

   The area of concern runs from the U-S border north through Moyie and Cranbrook to Wasa and east through Sparwood to the Alberta border.

  Warmer weather and added snowfall is putting added stress on the snowpack which means there's a potential for large and destructive slides.  You are advised to avoid avalanche terrain. All skiers and snowmobilers should be equipped with shovels, probes and transceivers. You should also make sure someone knows what area of the countryside you are traveling to and how long you intend to be there.

  This warning extends through Tuesday, Mach 15th.  However, snowpack stability changes rapidly and backcountry users need to check avalanche bulletins regularly.  The bulletins can be found at www.avalanche.ca
