A cold day freezing at all levels. There were frequent light snow showers, interspersed with periods of sunshine. The winds were strong North-Westerly.
New isolated accumulations of windslab have developed on East through South to South-West aspects above 900 metres. These new deposits of windslab are shallow and limited to wind sheltered locations such as coire rims and gully tops, which are easily avoidable. The existing older snowpack remains firm, icy and well bonded. The avalanche hazard is Low.
