Condition Report
Mt Rolleston (2275m) - Otira Slide

Issued: 25/08/2018
Back-country skiers today said the Slide was Spring corn snow. Skiable from summit, or just below "Loin Rock". The Slide has some avalanche debri on it. Not a lot of sun today, so snow stayed fairly firm and stable, however snow would get very wet and slushy if the sun was striking it or freezing levels were high during the day and wet sluff events would very likely develop - care required!
