Light snow showers

14th April 2017

A dusting of new snow above 900 metres.  Old snowfields are firm with a serious run out potential into rocks below.  Feeling very cold especially at plateau levels with blustery snow showers throughout the day on Westerly winds.

More of the same tomorrow; cold with strong Westerly winds, snow showers above 600 metres
