Fresh snow , sunshine and some great skiing on Friday Nov 25. Avalanche control produced more slides on both Whistler and Blackcomb. Size 1 to Size 3 . The next 2 days will produce significant load again and there should be some good results. The snow pack is about as complicated as I have seen it in my career.  In this shot if you look closely you can see a size 3 on Little Whistler. If you are venturing into the backcountry please read the advisory.    Click on this link.                 Present Avalanche Conditions
