- America has just had a poor year with late season snow in their winter/spring and we have a tendency to follow their lead so be prepared for this year.
- There have been many avalanches catching people where they have not experienced avalanches previously.
- The snow in spring is not attaching well to older layers and this is where avalanches let go.
- Check out the avalanche website before you go. www.avalanche.co.nz also a seven day forecast can be seen at www.metvuw.co.nz
JGAT Pack orders have started coming for this year. Please order early as early posting ensures the best use of the packs makes the packs available to more schools.
