A dusting of snow to sea level
28th November 2021
It was nice to wake up to a thin covering of snow at sea level, and even nicer when I got above a layer of low cloud to see some stunning views. There was, unfortunately a fairly persistent layer of cloud on the higher summits.
Although many hills look white the snowpack is shallow in most places and quite variable with breakable crust, ice, unconsolidated snow and windslab all present today. Windslab is mainly in locations such as the tops of gullies, around corrie rims and along ridge flanks and stability here will become poor for a time tomorrow as the temperature rises and snow turns to rain.
The following pictures show some of the great views over the low level cloud this morning.
