Almost a blue sky day
6th February 2008
Beautiful day at Meggie. There’s been a lot of snow transport in stronger winds and new slab is very weakly stabilised. Deepest stuff is at gully heads and corrie rims. Shears popped out just as the snowpit was being dug and a couple more slid out with very little encouragement. New cornices look pretty horrible right now as well. Elsewhere, there’s large expanses of crusty snow-ice that’s been well scoured. Should see some avalanche action on Thursday as snow turns to rain.
Good skiing today down to 500m. Beautiful descent from the col traversing high beneath the front face of the minor peak left of shot. (Eat your heart out, Sam & Oliver!)
Thursday’s looking desperate weather-wise.
