Beware the slopes
Even being well trained and equipped cannot completely remove the risks that come with mountain activities.
Last Thursday, a Squamish man was killed near Pebble Creek which is in the vicinity of Pemberton. According to Whistler RCMP, the man and his party were properly equipped and trained but he became caught in a landslide and couldn’t be revived.
Brace for snow on roads
A weather alert has been issued for parts of the Lower Mainland. The Howe Sound and the Sea to Sky Highway from Squamish to Whistler can expect 20 centimeters of snow.
The snow should begin to fall this afternoon with the majority of snow falling over tonight. The snow will be accompanied by strong winds so driving visibility will be reduced considerably.
Wednesday should see the snow turn to rain but conditions could still be treacherous.
