Cold Temps!

16th January 2023

Todays journey allowed observations on many aspects up to 1100 meters. The current cold temperatures have helped to preserve weaknesses within the snowpack. On low angle terrain there is opportunities for fun skiing and we encountered plenty of people out enjoying the hills.
