I think that the best word to describe today was white. Thick cloud and blowing snow meant for very poor visibility at higher levels this morning. My descent was very much survival skiing, and by the time I had got down motion sickness was making me feel distinctly queasy. Motion sickness is caused disagreement exists between visually perceived movement (or in my case lack of perceived motion, all I could see was white) and the body’s sense of movement (I could definitely feel the motion of skiing). However, you will be glad to hear that, with the help of a few cups of tea, this avalanche forecaster made a full recovery.
There has been a fair bit of fresh snow at higher levels over the past day or so, although exactly how much was hard to judge. It did try and clear up during the afternoon, and hopefully that trend will continue into tomorrow so that I might be able to provide some better pictures.
