Slightly overcast skies today, with calm winds. Temperatures are colder than usual and the courses are hard-packed groomed and great for cruising, as the visibility is good. Looks like the weather might get worse by the afternoon, so get your runs in early.

After a day of clear skies and no new snow over the last 48 hours the snow pack has done some settling. The lower layers would seem to have bonded quite nicely leaving use with only moderate instability in the upper 40-50 cms of the pack.

Winds were very strong 2 days ago and created wind slab in most areas in the alpine and at tree line. It is possible for this wind slab to slide on steeper slopes from areas of tension. ie. around rocks, from steep convexing terrain, corniced areas and from tensioned ridge areas that ave heavy wind deposits below.

In two recent pits in the tsugaike area the following was found of southerly facing slopes.

05/01/08
Tsugaike shizenen, elevation 1800 metres, aspect S
Compression Test Easy @ 38cm from surface on new snow, needles, columns with some faceting occuring size 0.5~2 mm, sudden collapse.

Rutsch Block 2 @ 38 cm

Slope Test. Ski cut, produced size 1 soft slab, 40 cm hieght of crown, 20 x 20 metres in area, deposit stopped mid track.

05/01/09
Tsugaike Tengupara, elevation 2000 metres, aspect SE
Compression Test Easy ~ Moderate @ 33 & 37cm from surface on fist density new snow underlaying wind crust and overlaying 1 finger density snow, with some faceting occurring just above 1 Finger layer, size 0.5 mm, Progressive Compression

Rutsch Block 5 @ 33 cm

Multiple slope use resulted in no slides on South East facing slopes in the Tsugaike area.

**AVALANCHE DANGER**
Moderate
Natural avalanches unlikely. Human triggered avalanches possible.
Use caution in steeper terrain on certain aspects.
