In consultation with the Canadian Avalanche Center (CAC) forecaster, NSR is putting out the word that backcountry users need to be very conservative this week, until conditions stabilize. This is not the time to be heading out for backcountry activities that put you at risk. Keep terrain traps and slope in mind even when on marked trails. Going out and getting into trouble puts the rescuers at risk too.

The CAC forecast is currently high at and below treeline (Very dangerous avalanche conditions. Travel in avalanche terrain not recommended).

Please monitor the CAC forecast here.
