Predominately dry through the period, the winds veered and were moderate from a Southerly direction. The freezing level was above the summits.Â The snowpack continues to thaw but is generally well bonded on all aspects and elevations. Localised surface instabilities remain on steeper slopes above 900 metres. These are mainly on North-West through North to East aspects. At lower elevations the snowpack is soft, wet but generally stable. Large cornices still exist , and these are very prone to collapse. The avalanche hazard is Low.
