Another sunny day, with fresh Westerly winds.  Once again the snow softened on sun exposed slopes, shaded aspects were mostly firm with serious run out potential in the event of an un-arrested  trip or fall.
This is the last blog for this season and we’d like to thank you for all your support during this interesting winter.

Softening snow on the plateau.

Worth bearing in mind that the snow remains firm on Northerly facing slopes!
