CURRENT ALERT
Avalanche Peak - Ice / snow
Some snow is still present about the upper mountain above 1700 metres on the Avalanche Peak track; it is generally soft, however avoid route if freezing conditions have occurred in previous 24 hours. Only use this route if confident on snow and stay to the yellow marker route (no shortcuts). The Scott's track is rock all the way to the summit.
