Mountain Conditions
Tuesday 1st December 2020, 08:18hrs: Dusting of fresh snow this morning at 1800m+ - will melt fast. Eastern rivers are flowing above normal this morning after yesterday's southerly rain. It would appear today (Tuesday) & Thursday are only finer (?) days this week; rain storms remain the common theme with lower level snowfalls likely (Fri - Sun).

24/11/2020 17:04hrs: All new snow that fell last Sunday morning has melted off to 2000m. Bit of a mixed bag for the week ahead, drizzle/rain developing now through Wednesday with gale-force south-easterlies across the tops; Thursday may be OK; Friday rain with late snow to 1200m; Saturday OK again; Sunday - heavy rain. The huge Spring storms have seemingly let go of us, though still unstable weather continues.

Climbers have reported soft (and potentially loose) snow conditions on snow-clad routes, rock routes are still clearing of the loose grud. Many ridge routes are now rock to 1900m (some to 2000m), or mixed with shallow snow above 1900m - the snow is no longer gluing the loose rock in place! Bergschrunds are now opening rapidly.
