Windy, Drifting, Deep Unstable Windslab !

Windcap over the Northern Corries
Strong winds continue, with drifting of snow - some deep unstable windslab on wind sheltered aspects.
A very weak layer of soft snow underlies the hard windslab - this has been found in many locations at about 40-50cm depth at 950 m level on W through N to NE aspects. This was the snow that fell in fairly calm conditions on the 30 Dec. !
