And it just keeps snowing!

17th February 2018

More fresh snow overnight adding to the already deep, fresh accumulations. The picture changes tomorrow afternoon as the freezing level goes above the summits. This will create further instabilities within the snowpack, notably on steep slopes and gullies. With the volume of snow on the hill, there is the potential of larger avalanches running to lower elevations. Being aware of what is above you will be essential for route planning purposes!

Crack line at the cornice above Easy Gully. Approx 5m back from the edge! The crack is more like a small crevasse and would give you quite a surprise if you fell through the snow bridge!

Wind transportation at 1000m.
