A Changing Situation
16th December 2022
The day started with cold clear conditions, rather than the poor visibility experienced for the last couple of days. A good covering of snow exists on all aspects and elevations, and it was nice to be travelling by ski today.
Winds were generally calm except at the highest elevations, where the redistribution of the soft snow started to occur. This will continue overnight and through tomorrow building windslab on North, North-East and East aspects above 900 metres. Older windslab will persist on South and South-East aspects as well.
As the winds become stronger tomorrow the situation will change with lots of drifting above 900 metres. Correspondingly, avalanches are likely where deeper deposits overly existing weaknesses. The avalanche hazard will be Considerable.
