Yesterday was certainly one of the great days of the season. Clear skies and deep powder, it just doesn't get any better. A few light snow showers did move through throughout the day but there was plenty of sunshine which was welcome after a week of storms. The sun will have created a bit of a crust on some south facing slopes so beware of this today. Last night was mostly fine and quite cold. This morning a bit of snow has moved in but this should clear as the morning progresses but later in the afternoon more snow is expected to hit the region as another weak low approaches from the west. The snow should continue through the night into tomorrow.
The new snow will be very welcome as much of the mountain was tracked out yesterday although there should still be some great lines off the peak. With winds remaining light over the last 24 hours the snowpack has stabilised and avalanche danger today is low. A stronger low pressure system is expected to start affecting our region on Saturday and bring good snowfalls into early next week.
