A little fresh snow

7th March 2023

A thin covering of fresh snow exists on most aspects. This snow has fallen on light winds and is soft, unconsolidated but generally stable. Where the old snowpack is present, mainly in North and East facing corries above 900 metres, this is very firm icy with rocks below many steep slopes. Good visibility for most of the day gave a good look at the snow cover. It remains very similar to before with a covering of fresh to make it look much more like winter. The forecast for tomorrow is cold and sunny. Minor surface instabilities are possible on steep slopes exposed to the sun.
