Another Windy but Clear Winters Day

14th February 2017

A very strong wind today with cold temperatures, windier with more pronounced drifting at at lower levels too.

The snowpack is generally pretty sparse so good vis is required if you are on ski in order to select the best route. The snowpack that exists is slowly consolidating and stabilising.
