Weak layers developing.
8th February 2018
It was a calm start to the day but there was little visibility above 700 metres. Due to the recent colder temperatures we have a deep seated weak layer developing within the snowpack. We also had a ‘whumphing’ sound on a steep slope, a classic red flag indicator of shear failure.
It can be tricky navigating through steep terrain in these conditions, some care required.
