The snowpack in the Kananaskis Region has been slow to melt this year, with over 100cm of snow at our weather stations at 2200m in the Spray and Kananaskis Valleys as of June 21st. This means that avalanche conditions are still a concern. Be aware of overhead terrain (steep snow slopes and cornices) that may become active during periods of heavy rain or intense solar radiation. Travelling on steep snow slopes could trigger loose wet slides, especially when the snowpack is moist or wet. Consider your exposure to terrain traps, including cliffs below your location.
