Avalanche warnings remain for several mountain regions in southern Alberta and...

CALGARY –
Those planning to go to the mountains this weekend should be cautious as avalanche warnings remain in effect in the mountainous southern regions of Alberta and British Columbia.

Recent thunderstorms that blew in western Canada dropped a significant amount of snow onto a weak and persistent layer inside the snowbag.

Warnings are for users of indoor and indoor avalanche land and are widespread.

Areas include:

  • Kananaskis Country

  • National Parks in Banff-Yoho-Kootenay

  • Waterton Lakes National Park

  • Southern Rockies

  • Sea-to-sky

  • South coast inland

  • Purcells

  • Lizard Range

Parks Canada says the risk forecast is considerable to moderate for Banff, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks by Saturday.

This means that anyone in the mountains must carefully evaluate snow and use cautious and conservative route search techniques.

Parks Canada says that avoiding the desire to ski powder in large resources will be the most important factor in avoiding an avalanche.

He encourages adherence to lower slopes with little risk of overload and says there have already been some procedures.

The likelihood of natural avalanches has decreased, but the likelihood of human-triggered avalanches remains high.

Avalanche Canada also had a special public notice in effect since Monday for Sea-to-Sky, Rocky Mountains, inland B.C.'s southern coast, Kananaskis Country, Purcell Mountains, Lizard Range-Flathead and Waterton Lakes National Park.

Before reaching the mountains, inland users are encouraged to check Avalanche Canada forecast.
