Description:
The avalanche danger is at Low as we move into a week of more settled weather, with this care should still be taken around steep unsupported slopes as the day time temperatures take affect on these aspects across most elevations. With enough heat and solar radiation there is always a chance of a spring time wet avalanche. Watch for early warning signs the snow pack is changing like snow balling on these slopes. Early bird mountain users will find conditions firm under foot but this will not taken long to soften.

Current Snowpack Conditions

Current Snowpack Conditions
Spring time conditions exist across the mountain with firm snow conditions in the morning and softening quickly as the day progresses. Steep northerly aspects will become affected first as the sun penetrates the isothermic snow pack and as the freezing level rises to around the summit most other aspects will become soft.
