After a week of near continuous snowfalls dropping close to 1.5m of snow today has dawned clear and cold with only light winds. The peak is finally going to open after many days of being closed and will offer incredible views and deep fresh lines. It will be epic!
Yesterday snowed moderately to heavy for most of the day clearing a little late in the day. Later in the evening the cold front associated with the low moving through passed over the region rapidly with strong winds and further snowfalls. Today should remain mostly fine although some cloud and a few snow showers may move through later in the day. Tomorrow is also looking mostly fine with some possible snow later in the day with some further snowfalls to follow on Wednesday. Clearing weather is then expected again on Thursday and Friday as high pressure ridges out over the region from Asia. Over the weekend though another system will affect us bringing further snowfalls into next week.

A word of warning to those heading up the peak today, although avalanche danger has lowered considerably it is still moderate and caution should be taken on steeper convex slopes and near the cornices. Traversing out into the bowls with people above you who may trigger a slide is not a great idea. It's going to be awesome but be careful!
