Frozen hard snowpack

1st January 2011

Good placement on the ground !
In the colder temperatures the snowpack has frozen pretty hard – very slippy ! due to the drizzle of early morning providing a nice frozen glaze everywhere above 600 metres. Breakable crust in many places – but the climbing will certainly improve – for skiing off piste or touring !!!! difficulty in holding an edge in places, crampons felt great!

Happy New Year !
