Mountain Conditions
General Conditions:
Monday 23rd March 2020, 15:00hrs: Enjoy the next 4 weeks "planning" your future climbing adventures, but not partaking them until the Covid-19 alert level reduces. All DOC tracks, huts and campsites are CLOSED! The Alpine Club huts are now closed. Very limited facilities will be available in Arthur's Pass after midnight Wednesday. Take care everybody!

22/03/2020 07:24hrs: Rivers currently in flood both sides of Alps after 24 hours of heavy rainfall. Generally poor weather conditions ahead, with low level snowfalls (1100m+) possible on Thursday.

17/03/2020 07:32hrs: Dusting of fresh snow this morning about the Alps to 1600m (3-5cm). Variable week ahead with heavier rain & gales moving in on Thursday.

11/03/2020 08:32hrs: Reasonably settled weather until Sunday when some SW showers arrive, though autumn fogs are sticking to the Main Range until midday most days. Late summer climbing conditions prevail, some larger glaciers have bergschrunds opening cutting access, and smaller glaciers and ice-fields are again disappearing, though not as fast as last year this time.

08/03/2020 07:08hrs: A short & sharp storm rolling in this afternoon; no doubt our rivers will react. Lesser rainfall continues until Tuesday. Bergschrunds on the larger glaciers (White, Crow) have finally begun to open and cut access.
