The old snow has re-frozen and is bone hard on upper slopes. This presents a major hazard in the event of an uncontrolled slip or fall with potentially seriously dire consequences.
Stormy conditions for tomorrow with very strong winds and frequent snow showers, Areas of unstable windslab will form in sheltered gullies and on steep scarp slopes, these areas are not expected to be deep or extensive but bonding to the underlying old snow will be poor. A degree of uncertainty exists over quantities of new snow so be prepared to modify your plans accordingly.
