For further guidance please refer to the following information forÂ hillwalkers and climbersÂ andÂ snowsports on ski and board.
This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.
The snowpack remains firm at all levels, and is a little bit forgiving if you traveling by ski due to a thin skiff of snow. Â A change in the weather than of late, cloudy grey conditions with a fresh Westerly breeze.
Travel on foot is made easy by the firm snowpack, boulder fields are straightforward to cross, paths below 800m, are mostly clear but icy in places. Â Remember to take your crampons and axe, steep slopes are very firm and icy with serious run out potential.
