Very light snow has continued since yesterday, but has resulted in only a few cm of new snow. Apparently there is more down low than high up in the mountains, with some icy conditions in places above the ski areas as the rain-soaked snow of a few days ago is freezing.

In fact, I got a call from one of our most expert local skiers, who we'll call E. Climbing high above the resorts, he said the new snow on the icy layer below wasn't so much a worry for instability as it was very difficult to climb up on skins. WE don't have a lot of snow forecasted, but if heavy stuff does fall on this now-icy layer, it could also mean some instability. Let's take E's advice, and enjoy some lower-angle slopes on the more mellow (and better snow-covered) slopes further down.
