This morning was again dry and clear with good visibility, cloudier in the afternoon. The freezing level started out around 250 metres but rose slightly through day to end up at around 750 metres. Winds were fresh from a North-Westerly direction producing a cold wind chill.
Small areas of moderately bonded windslab are present on North through East to South-East aspects mainly above 850 metres. These accumulations are generally localised and 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 Moderate.
