Strong winds..again. (Thanks Dudley!)
17th February 2022
A stormy day on the hill with periods of poor visibility, and a fair amount of drifting snow as storm Dudley started to track off into the North Sea. It’s all starting to look quite wintery up there now. Some interesting skiing, with the inability to go downhill into the very strong Westerlies, even down a moderate slope, was a tad disconcerting.
Even within an apparently homogenous layer of snow, many micro layers exist. If a block of snow is left in the wind, then the wind preferentially erode the weaker layers, brining out the structure, as in the photo above.
