Light snow fall and sunshine

27th February 2018

It has continued to be cold, freezing at most levels along with cold winds from a North-Easterly direction. Light occasional snow showers fell during the day, these were not particularly extensive and did not reach any depth. The snowpack is still firm and very icy in many places with serious run-outs in the event of a slip or trip. Low mountain temperatures giving strong wind chill effect. New snow amounts light and dry.
