Mountain Conditions
General Conditions (Updated 1130hrs Sat 22nd July, 2017):
Craigieburn / Torlesse Ranges: There is a HIGH danger from storm slab avalanches. About 30+cm of new snow rests atop an icy bed surface. Human triggered storm slab avalanches are likely. Avoid steep slopes and the runouts of any avalanche terrain. Visit avalanche.net.nz for further detail, and have a good read of Brad's report!

Arthur's Pass: OUT OF CONDITION! A considerable amount of fresh snow has fallen about the Main Range in the Park above 1500m. Initial snow came from N-NW and was lain upon previous rain-crusts and already reactive slab formation. Successive snow has blown in from the S-SE and may have produced further wind-slab on northern half aspects.
