Blizzards and Whiteout on the Tops

13th April 2016

No views today – a surprising amount of new snow in drifts in wind sheltered places.

Unstable while it is being deposited but temps and moisture in snowpack help bonding and stabilisation. So stabilising in an hour or so !

Old snowpack is pretty firm. Tomorrow when it should be sunny surface instabilities and sloughing will occur on steep slopes due to solar warming.
