Rockies Peyto Hut
Hi MCR Team
I reconnoitred the approach to Peyto Hut and Mt Habel this weekend.
On Friday am there was 15-20cm of new snow.
The toe of the glacier is already dry (except for storm snow). Fern line is approaching 2200m.
At 2800m in the Habel S Bowl there is 275cm snow.
I observed numerous slab avalanches triggered by loose wet avalanches; mainly E and N aspects. Crowns to 1m+ expected on melt freeze crust w wind loading. See photo from N aspect Mt Thompson.
New snow is mainly melted out below 2200m today.
