10th April 2019
A cloud covered sky at first with poor visibility on the tops but by mid morning it began to clear and we had some brighter periods. The snow pack is gradually depleting and is generally well bonded and stable. The snow cover is now very patchy even at higher levels but the remaining snow patches are quite firm and I met several hill walkers today with light mountain training shoes/approach types of footwear and they had to turn back as the snow is still rather firm and while it softens a bit during the day the night time temperatures seen to be keeping the snow quite firm. Some walkers were using crampons on the steeper ground.
