A fine good morning to you all. There are a few centimetres of new snow to soften thngs up on the groomed runs. Mild temperatures and a forecasted clearing sky should provide a congenial atmosphere on the slopes today.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The Hira Kawa Snow Study Plot (830m a.s.l.) 0700 hr. reading is:

Sky: Overcast
Temperature: Present: 1.0 C
Maximum: 8.5 C
Minimum: -5.5 C
Wind: Light north-west
Winds aloft: Not observed
Precipitation: Snowing 1 ( snowing at the rate of 1 cm accumulation per hour)
Barometer and trend: 918 hPa and rising
Height of new snow in 24 hours (HN24): 3 cm
Total depth of snowpack (HS): 80 cm
Foot penetration: 15 cm
Surface: New snow (rimed), size 3.0 mm
Density of surface snow: ~
Crust: not measured
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Hazard:
Above Tree Line: Moderate

At Tree Line: Moderate

Below Tree Line: Moderate

N.B. the daily warming may increase this hazard especially in the small terrain sense: e.g. a steep, sun drenched creek/gully bank. It is generally sage mountaineering practise to stay out of gullies and such and stay on top of the terrain, e.g. on the ridge crests and ribs, whenever practicable.

Travel Advisory:
We have decided to keep the hazard rating at "Moderate" below tree line because with the day-time warming this zone will be most affected by the forecast warming (yesterday the temperature maximum in the shade was 8.5 C). So watch the temperature and the terrain features. Yesterday afternoon there was still "dry" (i.e. you could not make a snow-ball) snow down to 900 m a.s.l. in the shady and northern aspect areas.
