Less windy today!

16th February 2018

The weather was more friendly today so it gave us the chance to get high on the hill. A fair amount of fresh snow in sheltered locations and also a large amount of fresh accumulations at middle altitudes as well. Where the fresh windslab is soft, it displays poor stability, especially on steeper slopes
