Avalanche Canada Announces Special Public Avalanche Warning

There's now a special public avalanche warning for all of Western Canada.

Avalanche Canada released the bulletin this morning.

Forecaster Josh Smith says it's really not safe out there "When we have the avalanche hazard rated at high - we dont recommend back-country travel for people with recreational avalanche training."

Smith says that the best plan is to wait out these conditions "I would simply suggest to enjoy the sunshine, and enjoy the mountains maybe from afar over the next few days. Let them do their thing and the go back up there when things cool down."

There's a considerable to high avalanche risk for the North and South Columbia mountains.

That risk is expected to continue for at least a few days.
