Cool and breezy

12th April 2019

Feeling cool in the South-Easterly winds.  Temperatures of minus 1 Celsius on the tops rising to zero by midday.  Shaded and Northerly facing snow slopes were firm, sun exposed slopes softened through the day.

    Good to meet you yesterday, hope the snow stays ok for skiing and the wind isn’t too bad – great skiing conditions yesterday down to the saddle.
