Mountain Conditions
General Conditions (Updated 1027hrs Wed 21st February, 2018):
Ex-cyclone Gita is bringing in snow above 1700m at present and lowering. It has been quite heavy overnight above 1900m and avalanche risk would be increasing in the upper altitudes as fresh snow will not bond to the glazed surfaces or loose rock/slabs.

Note: The Bealey Valley track is closed at the Chasm bridge whilst the bridge is repaired. It will reopen when it reopens.
