Avalanche warning issued for parts of Northern B.C.

Avalanche Canada is warning residents about potentially dangerous conditions through Northern BC.

The warning is in place for North Rockies, northern section of the Cariboos and the northern tip of the North Columbia.

Avalanche Canada’s James Floyer says the recent warm spell has made the snowpack unstable.

Floyer says backcountry users should especially avoid steeper terrains.

He notes this could be a sign for the rest of the season to be rough.

Floyer also notes that other areas include North Coast inland and coastal mountains could be seeing the same kind of conditions and to always be prepared for when you head out.

The agency says everyone using the recreational backcountry needs to carry an avalanche transceiver, probe and shovel.

The warning is in place until the end of Monday and officials warn it could be extended.
