Blizzards and Drifting

11th February 2020

Wild weather continues, heavy drifting has deposited deep and widespread  unconsolidated snow, very hard trail breaking on foot, easier on ski and snow shoe. Knee to waist deep in places. Windward areas remain pretty scoured and icy  but all shallow angle and lee slopes have deep snow, don’t be fooled by appearance!  mostly poor visibility with blizzards so only a few snapped shots when something could be seen.
