Yesterday's snow was much better than expected up top with the gullies full of light, dry pow. This morning it's a blue sky day with temperatures set to climb significantly to a high of 9C in the town and I suspect we will hit slightly positive temps at 1300m. Travel in the backcountry accordingly if that's where you are headed. Tomorrow is likely to be the same and rain is forecast for Wednesday.

We dodged it last time so fingers crossed we escape again.
