Spring Conditions

7th May 2016

Firm snow cover again after the cooler overnight temps – great snow cover and good touring remains. A very hot day in prospect the next few days so surface sloughs and cornice collapse are quite likely.

A cold snap may occur later next week which will preserve the snowcover,
