Whiteout

7th February 2019

Poor visibility on the tops today with whiteout conditions providing a test of navigation skills for those ski touring and walking. The snowpack is firm and generally is providing a good cover. The breakable crust of the last days has improved a bit with the underlying snow becoming more consolidated.
