Mountain Conditions
Tuesday 22nd June 2021, 07:26hrs: Fine weather for potentially 2 or 3 days; although we should be getting overnight freezes to about 700m, they will be fairly weak, and days will warm rapidly.

A severe NW driven storm arrives on Friday, and lurks through the weekend. Freezing levels are expected to rise significantly. Avalanche activity is expected to develop out of loaded terrain features (guts & gullies); the location of these currently varies considerably given the early season variability of the snow-pack.


19/06/2021 09:27hrs: A substantial amount of new snowpack melted back over the past week, leaving about 30 - 40cm on the sub-ranges at 1800m, and about 30 - 50cm on the Main Range at a similar altitude. Climbers reported reasonably good ice climbing conditions in gullies on southern aspects (nice "plastic" ice). In the past 2 days we have received about 10 - 20cm of fresh NW snowfall from 1500m+.

Southerly storm fronts will bring further low level snowfall (1000m) in more eastern ranges over the next few days.
