There was a little return to winter today. The temperature dropped to below minus four degrees celsius on the summits this morning, and this has frozen the previously wet snowpack. The snowpack is as hard and icy as I have seen it this seasons, and crampons were required for walking up the Goose Gully.Â There was a little dusting of fresh snow, but accumulations were very shallow and patchy. However, it looks like all change again over the next 24 hours with some mild conditions overnight followed by another cold day tomorrow.
