Feeling Wintry

24th February 2022

A blustery morning on the hill with South-West winds and the occasional shower. There was snow down to the road side with a more continuos covering of snow starting from around 300 meters and improving cover above. There was less snow amounts than I expected but never the less it felt very wintry and cold on the hill with plenty drifting. There is a wide spread surface crust which is breakable at lower levels and requires crampons at higher elevations.
