Sunshine on the snow…..

4th February 2020

It was dry, fine and bright with light North-Westerly winds, the freezing level was around 950 metres.

A thaw freeze cycle has helped to partially consolidated the snowpack. Localised pockets of poorly bonded windslab still exist mainly on North to East aspects above 900 metres. Wind sheltered steep locations such as coire rims, gully exits and ridge flanks above 900 metres are particularly affected. The avalanche hazard is Low.
