Mountain Conditions
General Conditions (Updated 0742hrs Sun 17th September, 2017): Climbing conditions poor/dangerous with very heavy rain due to high level then snow lowering to about 1000m, and NW gales. Avalanche risk will rise again today.

The previous storm-cycle removed a lot of snow-pack to about 1900m, mostly with the extreme warm NW winds rather than heavy rain. The snow-pack has been reported as isothermic in general, with slush at lower altitudes (1800m-), and only semi-supportive at higher altitudes (1800m+) with a break-through wind/rain crust.
