35cm of fresh powder at the valley level today with blue skies overhead and no wind. Perfect day to get out amongst the powder and carve it up!

There is more snow on the way tomorrow with the forecast showing it starting from late this evening and continuing through to tomorrow evening. This should bring another 30cm to the valley.

The upper mountains have now got between 150 - 250cm of base with Tenjin still having the largest snow falls. Tenjin received 50cm last night with another 30-40cm on the way tomorrow. The weekend is shaping up to be great riding conditions!

Backcountry
Much of the backcountry terrain is now good to go. Most creeks have been covered sufficiently above 1500m and apart from a few scraggly trees most of the terrain has filled in nicely. Pits dug on the weekend on South faces at 1900m did not show any significant weak layers with the snow pack looking relatively stable overall.

Alpine: (unknown)
Above tree line: Moderate
Below tree line: Low
