Areas of fresh unstable windslab are forming in areas sheltered from the South-Westerly wind. Greatest accumulations are in gullies and on slopes with a North through East to South-Easterly aspect mainly above 900 metres. A fairly gentle rise in temperatures overnight is now assisting consolidation of the older snowpack which is moist below 900 metres. Cornices are fragile. Avalanche debris (small) from an overnight event noted below Crowberry basin. The avalanche hazard is Considerable.
