Today was cold and very windy. Fresh snow on strong winds overnight and early this morning have created localised accumulations of windslab in wind sheltered areas on North through East to South-East aspects above 900 metres. As often happens with very strong winds snow has also been blown into hollows and stream beds at lower elevations, many other areas remain firm and icy.
