We seem to have missed out on the ‘Frozen North’ news headlines…..

A milder airflow affected the area over the period with resulting snow loss at lower elevations. Strong winds have scoured many open slopes; some re-distribution at highest elevations with any new slab deposits primarily on SW through West to NW aspects above 850m. Some minor accumulations noted at lower elevations – seen here (btm right photo) on a SW aspect at around 600m.
