Description:
The avalanche danger has moved to Low with the current conditions across the mountain. The snow pack has become generally stable with most of it locked up with a sightly melt freeze cycle across the mountain. Small pockets of wind transport snow may still exist on leeward aspects to the Southerly half and care should still be used around these. Think of the consequences before moving out onto a slope, where will you end up if it avalanches?
