Mt Somers track

Would anyone have any idea if there is much snow on the Mt Somers track at present? We'll only be doing the North facing side.

There was 30cm ish at Pinnacles Hut after the last snowfall a couple of weeks ago but NW in the last few days has caused quite a thaw.I`d be happy to go between Pinnacles Hut & WoolshedCreek Hut at present.I`d probably carry my little instep crampons in case of a freeze or an ice-axe.I don`t know your fitness or experience but if you tip up,and have communication of some sort(beacon) then a team from Methven SAR will be on your case.There`s cellphone coverage at Dukes Knob & on the deck at Pinnacles Hut.DOC in Geraldine may be of help.It`s a great area to tramp or spend some time.Just don`t over-extend yourself,especially this time of year..
