2012 Blue Lake Ice Conditions
8:55:31 AM
vwills were you out walking early saturday morning in a bunch of three? talk of sherpas, looked like they were carrying a fair amount of gear out towards blue lake!!!

1:19:49 PM
No, group of 2, and the pack was comparatively light. So much easier without ropes, harnesses and gear and my TLT5 mtn dynafit skiboots climb really well. Almost pleasant skiing with the pack on.

>Still a bit of ice at Blue Lake- can link up about 5m of vertical (at best ) into some low >angle ice and then another 2m flow to give about 20m of "steepish" climbing. The 5m
>high good ice section covers about 20m at ground level so made for quite fun soloing/ >ice bouldering variations but I'm glad we didnt take in anything other than tools and >crampons.
>Could ski all the way from the carpark in Guthega on Saturday and excellent snow >coverage from the 40cm dump last week.
>An avalanche had occured in the Blue Lake cirque (?maybe Thursday) with the crown
>isible about 2m below the regular cornice on the westerly slopes and a lot of debris below.

This is a fair report of the conditions last weekend too.
