Mountain Conditions
General Conditions (Updated 0726hrs Sun 10th December, 2017):
First rain in a month has now fallen; heavy and to high altitude. This should "lubricate" the glaciers into action, and remove the residual snow hiding on southern aspects.

Avalanche risk will rise considerably in the short-term as the already soft snow-pack gets itself saturated. Expect loose wet slides out of steeper terrain features.

And an unsubtle reminder, as this is the season when someone always seems to come to grief this way... avoid butt-slides and glissading in areas of poor run-out, as the slope may go with you into that waiting crevasse, or over that cliff!

Note: The Bealey Valley track is closed at the Chasm bridge whilst the bridge is repaired. It should reopen around January 8th.
