Sugar Free Candy Today…
14th February 2023
Not quite as sweet as yesterday, but still a pleasant day on the mountains.
The morning started sunny with strong Southerly winds. The sunshine softened the East and South facing aspects giving some very enjoyable skiing and easy walking.
Generally, the snowpack is firm and well bonded and it is mostly found on the high plateau areas and North facing coires above 950 metres.
Although there are some quite extensive patches, there are still nasty consequences should a trip, slip or fall not be arrested quickly, especially on steep slopes.
New snowfall is expected during tomorrow, it will be accompanied by gale force South-Westerly winds which will transport the new snow into wind sheltered North to East aspects above 900 metres.
