The forecast for today had cloud , wind and precipitation all increasing during the day so I decided to head out reasonably early. I was successful in avoiding he worst of the wind and all the precipitation but the cloud base was low enough to hide all but the lowest snow patches.
I came across some old debris from a large avalanche in Observatory Gully which I estimate came down with rain and rising temperatures on the 28th March – photos below.
