Cold and Windy

9th March 2017

A cold day with some drifting, snowpack stability has improved considerably with fluctuating temperatures. Good visibility mostly.

A soft layer of snow that fell on wed 2 March developed into a facetted layer and persists on N to E aspects above 1000m generally this is well buried and supported by upper layers, but still provides uncertainty in steep and convex shaped places.

Good climbing conditions in cories and good snow cover for ski touring.
