Mountain Conditions
General Conditions (Updated 1159hrs Sun 25th February, 2018):
Fresh unbonded snow remains above 1950m about the Main Range from ex-cyclone Gita very likely it will demise today in the NW storm; this snow arrived driven by galeforce SE winds so lee aspects probably loaded up. Luckily in this Park, in this season, very little permanent ice is here so not really expecting any prolonged danger from narrow wet slides into oblivion, though would not recommend glissading or butt-sliding anywhere (eg. White or Goldney Glaciers).

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