A cool Easter Monday

2nd April 2018

It has remained dry, but fresh Easterly winds made it feel very cold. The summit temperature was minus four degrees celsius and the snowpack remains generally stable in all locations. The visibility was mostly good with some light cloud cover over the higher summits.
