The storm has now passed over and left a beautiful blue bird sky this morning in Minakami. Clear skies this morning left a thick frost covering the valley, but this should soon disappear as the sun hits.

The storm of the last 4 days brought around 70cm of snow to the valley and up to 1.4m to the upper mountains. The warmer weather today will aid settling of the new snow before the next front hits on Wednesday.

Backcountry
The huge amount of fresh snow on top of the wind slab (formed by the strong winds of last week) has created unstable conditions and a number of weak layers in the upper snow pack. This could lead to some large sluffs and possible slab avalanches on steeper terrain. Considerable caution should be exercised in the backcountry over the next few days.

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