A blanket of Fresh Snow and Sunshine

25th March 2015

A cover of new snow presented a much better winter scene. Cold snow and new windslab building on Northerly aspects due to the South winds redistributing the lying snow. The sun quickly affected sun exposed slopes producing surface sluffs and potential surface wet slides.
