Get ready for the first storms of the season.
The first one is moving in through the Southern Interior.
Rob Anderson – the District Avalanche Technician on Kootenay Pass – says there may be 20 cms of snow up top overnight Tuesday into Wednesday.
That second storm will bring high winds and rain at the lower elevations Thursday and Friday.
Anderson says from an avalanche problem perspective it’s been a good start on the pass this year. That’s because there haven’t been any extreme weather events to create weak layers as the snow accumulation builds.
There’s currently about 30 cms of snow at road level and 60 cms in the slide path.
