DUMPING!

Yesterday the snow started to hit hard from late afternoon with a combination of strong wind overnight.

This morning there is 40cm-50cm of fresh dry powder sitting at the valley level with the forecast showing no signs of it letting up until Friday. The snow is currently falling at a rate of 4cm/hour. This means the snow brought from this storm (HST) is expected to be around 1.5m bu Friday morning.

High winds are expected around noon today, easing towards the afternoon and expected to be calm tomorrow.

Th outlook for the weekend is for sunny & cloudy weather, which means on piste riding conditions will be some of the best this season so far.

Backcountry Advisory
This new storm is loading large amounts of fresh snow on already weak layers. There was also some sun crust and wind slab present directly under the new snow which may cause sluffing in steeper terrain. There will be so much powder on piste over the next few days, keeping close to the resort may be the best option.

Avalanche Hazard:
Alpine: Considerable
Tree Line: Considerable
Below Tree line: Moderate
