Abstract: We report and discuss observations and measurements during Storm Lewis, a 160mm rain-on-snow event on the Milford Road, New Zealand from 21-23 October 2003. Data include: a suite of snow pack (creep, temperature profiles and out-flow of liquid water) and meteorological measurements that were telemetered from several remote sites; observations from snow pits excavated at 1900 m throughout the storm; observations of avalanche activity; results of control work following the storm; fracture-line profiles from avalanches that had been artificially released.
