Great Snow Cover
5th April 2018
Great snow cover, very hard work on foot though with a blanket of snow on most aspects above 600 metres.
The snowpack is generally well consolidated in most places but be aware of a weak layer that is at depth and should be considered an issue in steep places and especially in convexities or steep rolls at the tops of gullies and slopes.
Otherwise choosing uniform shaped slopes and avoiding convexities would be a good option.

Generally snowpack is consolidating but be aware of the widespread buried layer especially in steep places and in steep convex shaped terrain.
