Snow…….

23rd December 2015

It was a challenging day on the hill this morning. Plenty snow showers with drifting in the strong winds.

There were two ‘firsts’ for the season today –

1. A significant weak layer

2. There was a temperature gradient in the snowpack.

However, given another thaw tonight, it’ll be all change tomorrow!!

Very poor conditions today. Fresh windslab was quite deep in places.

Yukon goes to ground- best place in poor winter weather.
