A Refreeze with New Windslab developing

20th February 2020

A refreeze after rain to summits which wetted the snowpack has resulted in many areas becoming very firm and icy. Reasonable visibility for a time in the morning provided some dramatic views.  Very stormy with heavy drifting started to develop new unstable windslab accumulations, becoming more  significant in the afternoon with  the  heavy snowfall.
