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.
