Wind and snow
14th March 2020
A total contrast to yesterday. Gale force Southerly winds with heavy drifting above 700 metres. Deep soft drifts developed on steep banks at lower levels. The freezing level steadily rose to 900 metres by midday. A few people were battling their way up the hill into the wind on skis and split boards. Some mountaineers were using the ridges to avoid deep drifts. Later visibility improved. Tomorrow is another day!
