Good Snow Cover

18th December 2017

Great conditions today, quite cool in the wind, the snowpack has settled nicely after the thaw then freeze cycle, very firm in places, great cover on the plateau and the crags look good. Remaining warm for a few days lets hope that it hangs on for what looks like colder conditions arriving during Christmas weekend.
