The sun was shining for most of yesterday with a midday temperature of 3 deg C at the valley level. A cool night last night has created a crust layer on the surface which has once again melted in the sun today.

The snow is forecast to hit Minakami from mid afternoon today and continue to the early hours of tomorrow morning. There is more sun forecast for tomorrow but it should give way to cloud as a new front approaches.

Backcountry
The sun of last Monday has created a thick melt crust at 50cm in the snow pack on North slopes that has the wind packed fresh snow from the past 6 days sitting on top of it. Facets were starting to form in the interface between the crust and new snow creating a weak layer (CTM(11) @ 50cm). It would be advisable to pick your routes very wisely at present, especially avoiding steeper terrain.

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