      Active low to the North, building High will bring unsettled weather for today with warm temps.

      Fronts along the coast.

      Unsettled Saturday with warm temps and a mix of sun and cloud.

      Overcast Sunday with a chance of some afternoon mist. More of a Westerly flow. Snow on the way.


      Warm temperatures have also caused a lot of rockfall below tree line.

From Sea to Sky Bulletin:

On Wednesday, a natural widespread wet loose avalanche cycle up to size 1 occurred. A cornice failure size 1.5 also occurred triggering a small surface slab on the slope below.

As warm air and sunshine hit the region again Friday and Saturday Expect more natural avalanche activity to occur. The longer the heat sticks around the deeper it drives into the snowpack potentially initiating larger avalanches.

Sea to Sky Bulletin is available at the top of the tool bar on the Right side of the page.


      Pink sky Thursday am.

     Lenticular clouds to the North on Thursday.

      Must be slash burning in the Lillooet Lake area or Harrison Lake. Pemberton?

      Cornices are still on the small side. Use caution!!!

      Old tracks on the curl.
