An avalanche warning is now in place for a number of New Zealand Mountains.

The NZ Mountain Safety Council has said that danger levels have reached a winter season-high after significant amounts of new snow.

Currently, six regions are classified as “high” danger for avalanches and four are “considerable”.

High danger area includes Arthur’s Pass and Wanaka, with each recording several avalanches last week. The other high danger zones are: Aoraki/Mt Cook, Queenstown, Fiordland and Nelson Lakes.

South Island snow enthusiasts are urged to have a break from the mountains over the next few days due to high avalanche danger levels.

Tongariro, Craigieburn Ranges, Ohau, and Two Thumbs are all at “considerable” danger levels.
