Blizzard conditions hit the region all last night and we've hit the 2m mark on the upper mountain. Huge amounts of drifting has occurred even at low levels. This morning the winds have moderated but the snow has not abated at all. It will be really deep out there today. Snowboarders beware of getting stuck on flat areas because if you have to clip out of your board you may find yourself up to you armpits. It's still very cold up top so I'd suggest staying lower within the protection of the trees. Once again the very top lifts of the resorts will be on wind hold today. The snow will continue for much of the outlook although this coming week temperatures should get a little warmer.

On lee slopes up higher there have been accumulations from snowfall and drifting of up to 3m during the last 48 hours. All this snow is sitting on the icy layer left from the warmth and rain that preceded this storm. There's very high risk of slab avalanches in excess of 1m thick on upper leeward slopes. So please don't be ducking ropes out there. There's plenty of deep turns to be found without the need to duck ropes.
