The rain turned into snow for a short while last night, but we're back to rain at the moment - with snow forecast for the afternoon.... so let's keep our fingers crossed for that. Not as windy as yesterday but still some winds around, and temperatures are still above 0.   Read more ...

Weather conditions: Storm
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Big storm leaving wet & heavy snow on its way.
Very strong southerly winds made most of the lifts stop.
The wind will turn northerly later in the day and will bring more snow to cover the mountain with wind packed snow. Slabs will be forming quickly by strong wind and are potentially dangerous. Most of the avalanches occurs during a storm, noone should go out of bounds today.   Read more ...

Weather conditions: Light snow and cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Avalanche Advisory:
There is currently a lot of natural avalanche activity. Extreme caution is required on all aspects in terrain over 25 degrees. Rain from four days ago has solidified into a solid rain crust on all aspects below 2,000m. On top of this ice crust we have received 30cm of new snow that is avalanching easily and travelling long distances. Even in what would be thought of as safe terrain such as tight trees, we are seeing natural skier/boarder triggered avalanche activity. As skies clear today and wind increases we will see dense slabs forming on south, southwest and southeast aspects. It is extremely advised to stay away from obvious avalanche terrain i.e convexing, open slopes and gullies. Be aware of terrain traps below you and always plan an escape route before heading in one at a time.

Avalanche Danger:

Below Treeline: CONSIDERABLE. Natural avalanches possible. Human-triggered avalanches possible.

Treeline: HIGH. Natural and human-triggered avalanches likely.

Alpine: HIGH. Natural and human-triggered avalanches likely.    Read more ...
