The clouds held back, looming over the Alps yesterday, and we had blue skies all day. Freezing temperatures (as in minus tens) and some strong gusts meant some hold-ups - 47 was closed from the Goryu side of the mountain from after lunch. Real cold up there in the wind it was but some nice powder was had. A few teasing flakes last night but no accumulation this morning.

Yesterday snow and a high of three was forecast and as at this morning we have blue skies and nice cold temperatures. Still some real nice powder to be found if you know where to look, get out there.

Back Country Travel Advisory:

Strong to extreme winds in all areas yesterday - there was 30-50 cms of new snowfall Wednesday night, lee-ward slopes are much more loaded due to wind. Multiple size one to two off-piste slab avalanches have been witnessed slipping easily on the crust from two days ago and these could possibly crack down to the rain crust of January 12th causing very large slab avalanches. Travel out of marked ski areas is strongly discouraged. New snow was sliding easily even on-piste on the sides of the runs. Exercise due caution today especially on lee-ward slopes and solar aspects as the day warms up.

Avalanche Danger Scale:

Alpine: Extreme
Tree-line: Extreme
Below tree-line: High
