Only a dusting of snow overnight and this morning. Today though has cleared to a bluebird day and temperatures are quite mild with light winds. An absolutely beautiful day really except that we'd all prefer snow rather than sun at the moment. Snow is expected to start tomorrow with good falls through the weekend so hopefully we'll have some nice, soft powder turns again soon.

Avalanche Information:

Annupuri peak 6am: -13℃, NNW15m/s. The wind picked up from 3am and snowdrifts and cornices are slowly developing in leeward slopes. The snow condition above 1100m is variable from wind-scraped rippled surface to hard-pack and some wind-drifted soft snow patches. Moderate avalanche risk is present in south facing gully and steep terrain with dense snowdrifts or new deposit of drifted snow on top of crust/light snow. The gullies sidewalls in eastern area around 800m are also relatively unstable. Be aware of the potential risks and ride carefully.
Peak gates are scheduled to open at 9:30, though subject to chair-lift operation.
