If you’re heading out snowmobiling in the Central Columbia mountain range this weekend, take extra caution.
There’s an avalanche warning for back country users, extending to Monday.
Avalanche Canada’s warning includes parts of other regions such as the Kootenay Boundary, north and south Columbias and the Cariboos.
Of particular concern is terrain north of a line roughly between Penticton, Nelson and Cranbrook, and south between Williams Lake and Valemount.
The centre recommends people avoid steep slopes between 14-hundred and 18-hundred metres, including cut blocks, cut banks on roads and open areas in mature timber.
