The Bay of Islands Search and Rescue (BOISAR) is warning residents of an avalanche risk in The Bay of Islands Area, on the west coast of Newfoundland.

BOISAR's Community Events Coordinator, Garry Mackenzie, has been warning the public of an avalanche risk.

There is a lot of snow remaining along the top of the ridge.

If you are planning to travel in the back-country, take an avalanche safety course.

When traveling in back-country, always travel in a group. Ensure you have an experienced group leader. Always stay within view of your group.
