    Parks Canada along with our partners in Kananaskis Country and at Avalanche Canada have begun using a new "Spring Conditions" icon in the avalanche bulletin. This is meant to convey the highly variable nature of the avalanche danger during this period of the season. On the new "Spring Conditions" icon you will see a thermometer showing below freezing temperatures on the left with a green colour and check mark below it. This indicates a period of lower avalanche danger when temperatures are cool and surface crusts remain intact. On the right side of the icon you will see a thermometer showing temperatures above freezing with a red triangle and an X below. This indicates higher avalanche danger when the temperatures are above freezing and the surface crusts have broken down. More detailed information about the variable "Spring Conditions" can be found at http://www.avalanche.ca/fxresources/spring_ovw.pdf Daily avalanche bulletins will continue to be produced by Parks Canada until the end of April. These bulletins will show the avalanche problems for the day along with the forecast details. If the weather changes back to more winter like conditions we may go back to the normal winter danger ratings until things warm up again and we return to "Spring Conditions".
