For all the Peak to Valley Racers it looks like clear dry conditions for this coming Friday & Saturday. Will try to keep updating as we get closer to the week end. 

At 2280 meters the temperature is -3.5, with 70-90 KPH winds from the south at 06:00. At 1550 meters the temperature was 0 degrees, 98 % Humidity, and the barometer is on a slight rise. At 1650 meters (pig alley) 10 cm of new snow was recorded. At the catskinner plot there was 7 cm recorded.  In the valley it is +2. Avalanche control yesterday was getting size 1 slabs lee terrain.

Unfortunately the freezing level is not co-operating and the temperatures will remain warm with another 15-25 cm expected at upper elevations by tomorrow morning.A broad low pressure system spinning over the Gulf of Alaska is pushing into BC with abundant moisture flowing in from the Pacific Ocean.
