A Winter Scene
10th April 2017
A return to winter today with Â a dusting of snow above 900 metres and a bitterly cold, strong North Westerly wind presenting Â a strong wind chill effect. Great views and a bracing day.
The return to winter today is a real illustration of how rapidly Â the weather and conditions can change from spring to winter in a matter of hours. Old snow fields are now frozen hard and icy with serious run-outs, in the event of a slip, onto rocks and boulders at the base of slopes. Â However these areas though can be avoided with good route planning if no winter equipment (ice axe and crampons)Â isÂ carried.
