Blue skies and a few high clouds yesterday turned to snowflakes last night and we woke up this morning to around 5 cms of powder in Echoland with snow still falling but at most around 1 cm/hour. Temperatures are fairly warm with -1 degree at the base and -3 degrees at 1500m measured at 8:30 this morning with no wind to speak of so its possible we'll get the fresh snow melting if the sun appears today. Blue skies forecast for tomorrow...

Backcountry advisory update:

The snowpack is generally stabilising but there will still be areas of instability. Warm temperatures in general so South facing solar aspects especially will warm quickly increasing the possibility of wet slides - exercise more caution as temperatures increase. A lot of that snow has come down especially at lower elevations but as always travel carefully.

Conditions are generally getting better but as well as the risk last Friday's snow sliding there could be old instabilities especially with warming even going down to the rain-crust of January 12th. It's a big snow-pack and its all got to come down at some point...

Avalanche Danger:

Below Tree Line: Moderate

Tree Line: Moderate

Alpine: Considerable
