This morning we awoke to around 30cm of new snow in the Hakuba Valley. Higher elevations will have upwards of 40cm of fresh. High winds have transported snow over the past 24hrs and blizzard conditions prevailed steadily overnight. Currently still snowing lightly and wind is keeping the upper lifts closed for the time being. Get out there and enjoy the po pow!

****

Backcountry Travel Advisory as at Feb 24th:

Strong winds on Saturday have created thick wind slabs on South and South East aspects that may be unstable in steep convexing terrain. Combine this with the recent heavy snow and one could expect instability in steeper North and South aspects. Take due care around exposed rocks and sparse trees on solar aspects and in steep lee slopes. The recent snow is very variable in depth due to the wind and solar radiation so be aware of this when entering into slopes and stay away from shallow snow on steep entrances in to chutes and open slopes.

Avalanche Danger Scale:

Below Tree Line: Moderate

Tree Line: Considerable

Alpine: High
