Hi Wayne, these photos taken morning of April 9th. Very dramatic crown line taking out entire NW face of Matier (crown also visible bottom right). Step down to early winter pwl due to wind event? Debris pile was close to a kilometer from face onto glacier.
I think the Joffre photo shows signs of point release to wet slide.

For the forecast, cloudy skies for today (Mid layer and High layer) with a slight chance of some precipitation as a weak dry upper level trough passes through our zone. Upper level ridging will begin to build this evening influenced by a Northwest flow. Mostly sunny skies for Saturday with some cloudy periods tomorrow afternoon. The  ridge will also bring increasingly warmer temperatures into Sunday and Monday with sunny skies. The ridge will be pushed East with a strong on shore flow Monday afternoon. The models are not in agreement past Monday evening, appears to be a trough moving in from the North on Tuesday. More on next week tomorrow. Enjoy the spring weather over the weekend. Freezing levels Sunday and Monday will fluctuate from a low of 2000 meters to a high of 2900 meters on Monday.

                       As of 07:00 hours in the alpine we have overcast skies with variable visibility.
