Yesterdays modest amounts of fresh windslab, above 1000 metres, on North-East to South-East aspects, was today consolidating and improving in stability. Elsewhere the snowpack remains well bonded and stable. The avalanche hazard will be Low.
Yesterdays fresh snowfall and slightly warmer temperatures made for a little less “teeth chattering” during the ski down today. The surface of the old snow has softened slightly, but it does remain very firm still. Poor visibility and some proper white room conditions at times today.

Some assistance with the digging today!
