Today was predominately dry and clear with good visibility, quite a contrast from yesterdays mild, wet and windy conditions. The freezing level started out around 350 metres but rose slightly through day mainly because of the amount of sunshine. Winds were fresh from the North-Westerly direction producing some colder, crisp wind chill. Areas of moderately bonded windslab have formed 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 mostly affected. Elsewhere the majority of the snowpack is firm well bonded and stable. The avalanche hazard is Moderate
