2nd January 2013
It was a mild day, but not too wet (by West coast standards that is). The rain was drizzle rather than heavy. At 1050 meters we found the top 15cm or so of the snowpack to be wet, but still dry and sub-zero underneath. Plenty of cornices have come down recently.
The camera lens was a bit wet by this point. However, avalanche debris from a cornice collapse can be seen in foreground on the left of the picture. Some substantial sections of cornice remain as in the background.
Looking up the Nid ridge at about 1000m.
