A slowly consolidating trend…
16th March 2023
Rain at all levels today is slowly stabilising the snowpack in many areas, and there has been steady snow loss below 900 metres. Despite this weaknesses still exist in moist windslab, particularly on North-West through North to East aspects above 900 metres.
These weaknesses are likely to slowly diminish over time, but the snowpack will not consolidate properly until the return of colder temperatures. As such, steep and convex terrain on the above aspects will still harbour near surface instabilities.
Avalanche debris was noted today on a North aspect at around 1200 metres as visibility improved in the afternoon.
