Drove through on the weekend just past, still plenty of white stuff on the south facing slopes, but north facing looked okay up to about 1400m.

Things are starting to warm up, so pick your route with the avalanches in mind if you're gong into the steep stuff.

I hope this helps.

somewhere recently(pretty sure on google earth) Ive seen map and clicked on photo icon to see real time footage of road areas..... not perfect but will give pretty good idea of what weather is like in area and snow on roadside will show up.
