It was another wild day up the hill. Yesterdays snowfall kept going throughout the night although it eased  slightly by lunchtime. The winds were strong all day, lots of drifting with poor visibility.

The skiing would be excellent……..if we could see!

 

Strong winds and lots of drifting today. We were careful with our route choice using a bit of local knowledge to access newer accumulations and safely conduct field assessments.

 

Windslab was deepest in steep wind sheltered terrain.
