Huge winds over the weekend. Pretty extreme conditions up there yesterday no-one wanted to be the person stuck on the lift when it stopped. The storm brought snow but with it so much wind that none of the powder ended up on the skifield resulting in skating on the ice from the last rain event of the 11th.

Freezing today, minus 6 degrees in the valley and minus 9 up top with moderate North-East winds.

Forecast:

Possible snow today clearing this evening with more possible snow flurries tomorrow night.

Backcountry Travel Advisory:

Pretty varied conditions in the backcountry right now. The rain event of the 11th has left a solid ice layer and the high winds moved a lot of snow resulting in icy North and North-West faces and heavily wind-deposited South and South-East ones with deep powder in some areas. The new snow appears to be beginning to bond well to the Ice layer but exercise due caution especially if/as temperatures rise.

Hazard:

Above tree line: Considerable

Tree line: Moderate

Below tree line: Moderate
