    I'd bet this is old hat for a lot of people. However here's some weather info resources

    https://sawback.com/telemetry/ - weather telemetry from Tom Wolfe

    http://www.leelau.net/sharonandlee/r...and-a-new-map/ - weather and info for Rogers Pass area and some central Interior. Pic links are dead. I'll update for 2020

    Oh to be young again. My 87 Jetta never had a problem but if I saw sled tracks I would have turned around and gone to the burner.

    "In response to the province urging people to avoid non-essential travel, Revelstoke Mountain Resort and Tourism Revelstoke have paused advertising aimed at enticing visitors.

    “We are following the advice of Dr. Bonnie Henry and advising guests to stay local,” said Kevin Manuel, Revelstoke Mountain Resort spokesperson.

    The resort is expected to open Nov. 27.

    Tourism Revelstoke said going forward all their messages will ask people to stay close to home until the provincial health authority says otherwise."

    Got a nasty feeling I'm not going to get much use out of my season pass

    The official position:-

    Travel for mountain sports

    Ski and snowboard at your local mountains. For example, if you live in Vancouver, you should ski at Cypress, Grouse or Mt. Seymour.

    Coming from outside of B.C.

    At this time, people travelling to B.C. from another province or territory within Canada should only come for essential reasons. If you do travel, you are expected to follow the same travel guidelines as everyone else in B.C.

    Work is my exposure. After having visitors every weekend last winter, im now just riding solo mostly. Ive only been a vehicle with other people 3x , apart from work. Mask up. Haven't left town. Only go to town for groceries and the odd bike part. Solo gondola all summer.. my rulz. Ill let the experts decide any additional measures. Its a pain but small term pita for long term gain. Id hate to catch it and infect a compromised friend

    Yep, and I guess weíre both part of the problem eh
    Still, sunny skies and good snow made it worthwhile. Tried to be creative in our routes to shake off the crowd. I wasnít sure if solo drivers made the parking lot look even busier but no doubt it was a lively scene.

    Sledder triggered burial, companion rescue, at boulder last week. D-bag made a youtube video about, but couldn't be bothered to post a MIN? Ok. I watched the video on 2x speed, but I am prety sure he said something to the effect that it was the first burial of the season.. maybe i miss heard, but It sounded like he was framing it as there will be more, we get burred all time. bunch of kooks.

    In other news, Lumby/Mable lake sled club is boasting over 170cm. with the massive ice crust (likely birthing a persistent slab), travel is pretty good, many hazards are well covered.

    Sounds like that train crust is persistent all the way north to caribou. Sounds like quite a few accounts of slides on that similar aspect. Eastiah aspect. That shoulder on airport loads huge as the main way in and out is just to the left in the video

    ⚠️ Attention Rogers Pass backcountry users ⚠️
    During the first avalanche control closure of the season, less than a week into the Winter Permit System, tracks were found entering a closed Winter Restricted Area from the unrestricted Connaught Creek area. Entering an area of the park that is closed for avalanche control, using live artillery, not only puts yourself and others at risk, it also puts the entire Winter Permit System at risk.
    Winter Unrestricted Areas like Connaught Creek are kept open because this terrain is not affected by the highway avalanche control program. If these areas continue to be used to enter terrain, like Grizzly Shoulder, in closed Winter Restricted Areas, Parks Canada will consider closing Winter Unrestricted Areas during avalanche control.
