Avalanche Activity

28th December 2012

It was another poor visibility day, and the freezing level gradually rose above the summits. Luckily, although the winds were strong, they weren’t as fierce as expected and the precipitation was lighter. There were some areas of unstable snow and a small avalanches was triggered on a North aspect at 950 metres. The light was very poor leading to dubious photo quality.
