Yesterday remained snowy through most of the day but cleared in the early evening. Then overnight and this morning more snow moved across the region. All up there's been another 10-15cm of fresh powder keeping surface conditions in excellent condition and it's another morning of fresh tracks all over the mountain. The Annupuri ski area has also reached 4.5m depth up top, which is pretty reasonable in a below average snow year.

It's currently still snowing lightly but besides a few more occasional snow showers today should fine up. The wind has remained relatively light and there's been little drifting up high keeping the avalanche levels reasonably low so all gates will open.
The next few days are still expected to warm up with rain moving in on Friday. On Saturday this should turn back to snow but temperatures will still be fairly mild so it won't be light dry powder, at least at lower levels.

Today may be the last of the really good powder for a little while so make sure you get out and enjoy it.
