After a frosty start it was a lovely calm sunny day with almost no wind. The freezing level slowly rose during the period to around 650 metres. The winds were light from a Northerly direction. Localised areas of shallow windslab still presist mostly on North through East to South-East aspects above 850 metres. These accumulations have marginally stabilised and are generally avoidable. Steep wind sheltered terrain such as around the tops of gullies, coire rims and convexities are mainly affected. Elsewhere the majority of the snowpack is firm well bonded and stable. The avalanche hazard is Low.
