Persistant drifting

12th February 2017

There was a lot of drifting in the strong winds today. Many steep sheltered features were catching deep unconsolidated snow.

Good cover but without a base at lower levels.

There were quite a few ski tourers out today, it was definitely better than being on foot.

Good cover higher on the hill, great skiing in places!

A bit of video, hopefully it’ll give you an idea of the drifting today.
