Poor stability.

9th February 2017

Despite the poor visibility it was great to get out on ski’s again.  The wind has pushed the snow around quite a bit, if you intend touring this weekend expect some mixed conditions.

Ascending on ski was fine, the descent was pretty ugly!

Stability is poor within deeper deposits.  Here is a video showing the main weak layer. We had the same layer yesterday but several kilometres from this site.
