Weather & Snow Characteristics
Please provide details to help us determine the weather and snowpack during the time this observation took place.

Snowed about 5cm from 10am-1pm. Light winds in the trees and at treeline. Quite warm, right at freezing.

Snow surface

Nice unconsolidated snow at and below treeline, though a little denser than expected. No wind effect below treeline, and some slight scouring in hills below Tincan Common.


No red flags observed. No formal tests. Deliberately made ski cuts on cornices and steep rollovers to no effect. New snow produced great boot deep skiing. New to old snow felt right side up.
