High cloud covers the valley this morning with good visibility of all of the upper mountains. The current temperature is -4 deg C with an expected high of 2 deg C, which should keep the on-piste snow conditions stable throughout the day. There may be some light snow later this evening but it will not amount to much.

The forecast is for a week of clearer weather, although Tenjin may get some light snow throughout the week. Temperatures are expected to remain relatively low during this time although the sun could cause some crusting on South facing slopes. There is more snow forecast from Thursday this week.

Backcountry
Stay away from South facing slopes at the moment. They have been heavily loaded by the snow and winds of late. The ice layer from Dec 29th still remains and there are also a number of wind slabs that have formed above this.

Hazard:

Above tree line: Extreme

Tree line: Considerable

Below tree line: Considerable
