A Quiet Day to Start 2018.

1st January 2018

It was a quieter day than of late with just a few light snow showers from time to time. It was slightly colder than yesterday, and in areas the snowpack has a bit of a crust to it. However, there were still some areas of unstable slab.

Fresh snow at 750 metres.

It was pretty hard going on foot in some areas.

Ice on the grass. A temperature spike at recently had created a crust on the snow, and verglas on rocks/grass.

Shooting cracks in the snow.

The Flypaper ski run still requires a bit more snow.
