It was freezing at all levels on New Years eve then the level rose to around 350 metres during today, it was dry with fresh Northerly winds. The snowpack stability has continued to improve in the colder temperatures and also a change of wind direction has helped too. However, some localised accumulations of moderately bonded windslab persists mainly on North to East aspects above 870 metres. All windslab instabilities are on steep sheltered terrain with gullies most affected. Cornices are fragile. The avalanche hazard is Moderate.
