Avalanche problem #1 : Wind slab

Moderate NW winds have shifted the new low density snow toward E-SE-S-SW slopes and created wind slabs in a few places where you will need to check for stability. Even with a LOW reting, it is possible to trigger a small avalanche in steep terrain.

Avalanche activity

No new avalanche was observed or reported today. Thanks for sharing your observations at info@avalanchequebec.ca or with Avalanche Canada Mountain Information Network.


Today’s observations below treeline at Mines Madeleine have allowed us to see that the 35 cm of new powder snow received since Friday is covering a melt freeze crust of that would have formed last week.

Weather forecast

Few new precipitation is expected until Tuesday night and winds will be rather weak. Temperatures will tend to remain around -5 C near the peaks during the day.
