A mostly bright day with some cloud pushing through at times and just the odd flurry of snow. The wind chill was significant with any exposed skin becoming painful within minutes. The old snow patches are firm and icy with occasional patches of fresh windslab encountered. These are mostly avoidable and generally shallow, although the odd deeper area does exist.
Should be slightly less windy on Saturday and mostly dry, but still pretty cold.
