A dusting of snow fell overnight in the valley, however strong winds overnight have spread the snow off the windward sides of the slopes and onto the leeward sides. As well the temperature has risen and thus the snow will become a little heavier at the bottom. Currently partly cloudy skies and a mid band of cloud has rolled in shrouding the upper slopes of the ski hills.

Winds were very strong last night 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**
HIGH
Natural avalanches possible. Human triggered avalanches likely.
Use caution in steeper terrain on certain aspects.
