As of 9:00am, all mountains lower lifts only. Gondolas all closed.

Well, the snow is finally falling again, and the good news is that it's expected to continue ALL WEEK! We had over 20cm of fresh powder overnight, and it hasn't let up all morning. Strong winds means we've got to ski the bottom runs and just be patient until the upper lifts open, as there's going to be plenty of powder when we can eventually get up there!

** AVALANCHE WARNING HIGH**
Avalanche Danger EXTREME above tree line
Avalanche Danger HIGH below tree line

With all this new snow we have gotten over night, and looking like it will continue, there is high to extreme danger forecasted over the next little while. The new snow is perceived to not bond well to the January 14th Rain crust, nor the pockets of hard wind slab. The Crust covers every aspect at every elevation to the peaks of the mountains thus all aspects will be very prone to natural and skier triggered avalanches that will travel fast and far if they do slide. The East and South East bowls and gullies have10 cm ~ 30 cm of hard wind slab over this crust that may also cause an instability between the rain crust and new snow. Be very cautious of wind loaded south slopes, expect deposits of 70 cm plus, and be cautious of weak cornices on those same south faces.

The next few days may not be the best days to head in to the Back Country or off piste from ski hills because of the high risk, but will be great on the slopes within the resorts.

If you do go, be extra cautious and be very sure to wear your beacon, carry your shovel and probe and know how to use them .
