The snowpack is slowly consolidating. However, areas of moderately bonded windslab remain in sheltered locations mainly on North-West through North to South-East aspects above 800 metres. Fragile cornices also exist above similar aspects. Slopes at lower elevations are generally stable. The avalanche hazard is Moderate. New snow arriving tomorrow will increase the avalanche hazard.
