It felt slightly more like winter today on the higher tops. The older snowpack which has gone through the wet weather earlier in the week has frozen at higher level. Yesterday some fresh snow fell. This has formed some quite unstable looking cornices along the top of the higher coires. I saw a couple of locations were some quite substantial sections of cornice has collapsed. Cornice collapse will remain a hazard for the next few days.
