Yesterday the snow fell until midday bringing around 35 cm in total to the valley. The sun shone all afternoon and temperatures rose, melting much of the fresh snow and settling the snow pack in general.

This morning is a another blue sky day with some very cold temperatures before the sun came out (-12) but things are slowly warming up. (currently -3)

Tomorrow morning the sun is expected to shine but the clouds and snow are forecast to roll in around noon and continue through to the midday Sunday.

Backcountry Advisory
Snow on South faces was heavy by mid morning with North faces starting to crust towards the afternoon. The evidence of many large recent avalanches (size 2-3) were obvious on the South face of Mt Tanigawa with debris filling the valley. Data collected from a pit on the North face (1300m) revealed that there is still a very weak layer below the new snow, as deep as 200cm in places (CTM 12@ 192cm SC). This layer could cause large avalanches, especially on steeper terrain. Caution is advised.


Avalanche Hazard:
Alpine: Considerable
Tree Line: Moderate
Below Tree line: Moderate
