Avalanche Canada has issued a warning for outdoor enthusiasts on the North Shore.
They say with the current weather system coming through, there is a moderate to considerable risk of people triggering an avalanche.
Avalanche Canada warns to avoid exposure to things like gulleys and creek bottoms, both areas that are very dangerous in the event of an avalanche.
They say to stick to simple terrain and be aware of what is above you at all times.
Any new snow will require a few days to settle and stabilize.
Doug Pope of North Shore Rescue says it could get worse.
“If we do get to 30cm of snowfall, that danger rating will go up to high, meaning people should be staying in-bounds.”
Pope says natural avalanches can occur regardless of high warning levels.
“One that occurred yesterday in and around pump peak on Mount Seymour and the last storm, last weekend, we had avalanches that we know of.”
