The snowpack was very firm at all altitudes following a good overnight refreeze. The consequence of a slip or fall could be serious due to the nature of the run outs. Unfortunately the cloud didn’t clear when out to do observations, but it was bright and warm on return to base. There is only patchy snow cover below 950m. The snowpack remains well consolidated and firm at all levels.
