13th January 2023
There is a covering of new snow on all aspects generally above 650m. No snow below 500m so there is a well defined snowline. A miserable morning brightened up by midday and the snow showers became more isolated. With fluctuating freezing levels, changeable wind directions and varying amounts of new snow fall, windslab is forming in a variety of aspects and terrain features, but generally at higher elevations.
