2nd January 2023
It was slightly windier and there were a few more snow showers than forecast today. Localised areas of windslab were developing in wind sheltered locations. Although not extensive these areas of windslab were sitting on yesterday’s layer of soft snow. This provided a weak layer and the icy crust below this provided a good sliding surface.
The pictures below show signs of drifting and wind redistribution. It’s worth considering where the snow has gone as there’s likely to be windslab in sheltered locations.
The pictures below show the crown wall and debris from a skier triggered avalanche on a North-East aspect at around 950 metres.
A couple of views from the roadside below.
