It felt very cold on the hill today, a frosty start with very icy paths. There remains continuing underlaying weaknesses in the snow pack above 850 m and there were also some accumulations of drifting snow developing on North to East aspects. As this wind turns Northerly these accumulations will build onto wind sheltered terrain and there is heavy snow showers forecast so the wind slab will deepen.
