Unstable windslab is building on East to South aspects above 800m, on top of the crust mentioned in yesterday’s blog. The unstable windslab is becoming more widespread and increasingly hazardous.

Blizzard and white out conditions were experienced today. There was significant drifting of new snow and very few rocks left exposed at higher elevations to provide definition.
Snowfall, at all levels, is set to continue through tomorrow. Heavy snowfall combined with very strong North-Westerly winds, means that unstable windslab will continue to develop and become more extensive. Avalanches are likely on East to South aspects above 800m.
Blizzard and whiteout conditions are expected again tomorrow, before a sunny day expected on Wednesday. It is forecast to remain cold.

In March 2006 is was doing Winter ML assessment at Glenmore Lodge and there was a similar weather pattern i.e. Northerly winds and heavy snow. By the end of the week there was 50cm of snow in the car park. I wonder how much there’ll be by the end of this week.
