Plenty snow remaining
14th April 2018
The day started with blue skies and sunshine but unfortunately that didn’t last as a layer of cloud came in at around summit level.
There was soft spring snow on all aspects and at all altitudes. The snowpack is slowly melting in the warm temperatures and this is expected to continue. Some areas which only had a thin covering of snow are now bare but much of the snow cover is deep and will persist for a long time even in the warm conditions.
Many cornices remain, as can be seen in several pictures below, and are prone to collapse.
This will be the last Blog and Avalanche Forecast for this season. Enjoy the remaining snow!
