    Any snow on the Kawekas yet?

    Am planning a wee walk about in the Kawekas some time over the next 2 weeks. Is there any snow about yet?

    There was a dusting on the tops from the cool snap end of April.

    It was still sitting on the ground on the high flats of Golden Hills, and this was our view from the hut at GH Airstrip
    on the 2nd May

    I believe there will be a significant snow fall this weekend due to the low pressure system approaching.

    I can't see the Kaweka at the moment due to the rain, maybe it's snowing up there right now.

    It's also been quite cold and frosty here this week.

    Cheers

    Thanks chaps. I see that its shit this Friday and then clearing. I might get in after that goes through but for a challenging tops walk by myself I've probably left it too late. I will probably go Lakes/Kiwi Saddle/Castle Camp and maybe Rogue Ridge or back the way I came. If its shit at least I have KS & CC to hold up in.

    Cheers

    Huge front came through Havelock this arvo. Would imagine it would have brought a lot of wetness if not snow to the tops!

    A good amount of Snow fell on the Napier - Taupo road today.

    Kaweka will definitely have snow on it as a result.

    Thanks chaps. Snow on the Rimutakas tonight too. Craigc and I went out and got a pig, and the chill factor in the wind was extreme. Poor little Grandson got very cold in-spite of his good gear, so I had to walk out with him a bit early. Craig got back to the ute after dark and found us in it with the motor running and heater on.

    It looks like I might have left my Kaweka walk about a bit late.
