What may be….

28th February 2017

Currently there is a mix of snow around at the moment from hard firm snow to localised areas of windslab.  Although the windslab is unstable most of it is generally shallow and/or avoidable.

Its worth pointing out a couple of things about the current conditions.

The patchy windslab may be a problem if we receive more snow on top of it. As there is a lot of cold dry snow lying around, changes in wind direction and strength may move some of this around resulting in significantly deeper accumulations forming in places. Worth keeping up to date with the reports and weather forecast.

Although there is windslab on most aspects, most of it is avoidable.

Windslab, although unstable is generally shallow.

Someone was enjoying themselves on ski’s! Plenty routes for ski touring available on the plateau.

A bit murky at times today.
