Yesterday the snow accumulated another 20cm in the valley bringing the current snow depth this morning to 45cm. At the upper ski areas there has been a total of over 100cm of snow brought by the recent storm creating large powder pockets in some bowls that are almost too deep to ride!

The outlook for today is for overcast weather turning into snow tomorrow morning, which should continue throughout the day. Saturday brings fine weather to Minakami, which should be good for settling the snow. There is more snow forecast from Sunday.

There has been a lot of new snow fallen and wind transported in the last 5 days, on top of the thick rain crust from December 29th. This is causing VERY UNSTABLE conditions. There have already been 4 fatalities in the last 3 days from avalanche activity. Powder hounds would be advised to stay in bounds and wait for the new snow to settle.
