Thursday, 21st August 2014

There is a flick from the south on the east coast today. Conditions will be clearing from the south tomorrow and the weekend is looking like a beauty !! There is chains required at some areas still and the avalanche hazard is low to moderate at most areas so all you will have to worry about this weekend is respecting other people and have a blast!

The CHILL K2 Big Mountain comp kicks off this Thursday at Craigieburn. We are into the events month with HEAPS of events this weekend.  EVENT ORGANISERS: If we don't know about your event we can't promote it. Use CONTACT US  (at the bottom right of this page) to let us know.

The forecast now is for mostly settled weather for the foreseeable future with a lick from a low in the North Island and the top of the South on Tuesday and Wednesday next week. This will consolidate the new snow that we have had so the season is back on track. Hopefully we will get some more top-ups during the last week of August leading into September.
