Persistent snowfall on strong South-Easterly winds. Â These felt stronger at 600 metres which is classic for this wind direction. Â At higher levels mountain conditions were poor due to bad visibility in the drifting snow, but the winds were bearable.
Unstable windslab and cornices are developing in lee areas to levels as low as 750 metres. Â Wind exposed terrain is firm and scoured.
