A Winter Wonderland

18th January 2024

Further snowfall overnight and throughout the day has produced deep lying and fresh snow making progress difficult, even with snowshoes! Strong summit winds. particularly during snow showers, has led to significant drifting, with continued development of unstable windslab, mainly above 700m in steep wind sheltered locations. More of the same tomorrow, but stronger winds in general.
