Spin drift in the strong winds today

More spin drift, snow being moved onto the North-East facing slope on the left side of the picture at around 700 metres.

Taken in a similar location as the previous photo in a break in the winds.

Looking up the same ridge, showing cornices starting to develop as the wind redistributes snow.
