Cold clear with light winds

8th January 2016

Clear sky’s sunshine and light winds!  A  very cold snowpack maintaining instabilities.  Underfoot conditions are a mix of deep drifts in lee areas, firm scoured snow ice in exposed areas and fluffy snowfields with rocks beneath the surface.

      Thank’s Mark it’s always good to get a blue sky day especially after the stormy weather we’ve just had.
