Happy New Year,

There is good snow cover after the recent snowfall, however it was hard to see much today. It was a cold day with moderate Northerly winds and some snow showers.

Taking a bearing to navigate in the poor visibility

Poor visibility at around 1000 metres

Looking downhill at around 750 metres, good snow cover.
