The risk of avalanches in British Columbia's southern Interior has increased, thanks to the recent weather conditions.
More snow is forecast for this weekend, and it's falling on an already weak layer of snow pack. The Avalanche Centre says the layer of snow is so fragile that the weight of a single person could trigger a slide.
The special avalanche warning now applies to the mountain backcountry along the North and South Coasts, the northern Rockies, the Columbia Mountains and the Kootenay Boundary region.
Backcountry travel is NOT recommended.
The warning will be in effect until Monday, March 1st.
