A slightly calmer day but still very cold on the hills.

Great cover. Perfect for traveling around on ski’s. 


Becoming firmer on any windward aspect after recent strong winds.


Despite the strong sun it was still bitterly cold on the hill.

Surface hoar developing in wind sheltered areas.



An Socach. I’ll let you find the skiers/tracks.
