May 6, 2013

If you plan on ski touring into the park be aware of these closures. This area is an active construction zone with blasting occurring on a regular basis. Use the disease ridge area to access and egress the park.

At 2240 meters the temperature was +9, winds were 5-15 KPH from the S. At 1550 meters the temperature was +11.5, no new snow with a base of 173 cm. In the valley it was +6. Observations taken at 07:00 Hrs this AM. Max temp in the valley yesterday was 28.4, max at 2240 meters was +15, and max temp at 1550 meters was +18.

For the forecast the high pressure will continue to bring sunny skies and warm temperatures to our area. There is a weak frontal system forecasted to enter our area by Sunday. For now it looks like the marine influence south of us may not enter our zone with the dry stable air mass embedded in BC, temps may cool slightly in the next 2 days. Refer to satellite imagery lower on the page.

Being at the beach is almost like being in the mountains, there were snow capped peaks in the background.

Sand avalanches were evident.

And just like snow, there were various layers in the sand.
