The snow has been coming down hard over the past 24hours with 60cm of fresh overnight bringing the total snow from this storm (HST) to 1.2m at the valley level. The snow still continues to fall but is supposed to clear by early afternoon.

The outlook for tomorrow is for fine weather with more snow now expected on Saturday. From Sunday onwards the sun is forecast to shine for almost an entire week. This will make a nice change from the heavy snow and winds of late.

Backcountry Advisory
High winds have transported much of the exposed snow to sheltered areas creating very deep pockets of up to 1.8m of powder. The large amounts of fresh snow are highly likely to sluff on steeper terrain, with even some fresh snow slabs witnessed yesterday.

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