Today was a cold windy day with mainly Westerly winds. Instabilities remain in windslab on North through East to South-Easterly aspects above 900 metres. Windslab deposits are localised with high wind sheltered areas such as coire rims, gully tops and convex terrain most affected. Snow has also been blown into wind sheltered locations at lower elevations such as stream beds, gullies and hollows. Every where else the snowpack is firm and icy, and a slip would have serious consequences.
