Winter isn't done up high yet, that's for sure. 8cm fell in one hour at KHMR today, with mad winds. But the slopes are reacting again. Ryan Harvey, on his birthday, gives us the gift of his snowpack wisdom as we slip towards real spring.
Usually we tell you what should scare the hell out of you out there. This week, however, it seems you have nothing to fear but fear itself...within reason. Chris Granter explains.

Another layer of frosty feathers has entered the snowpack. Chris Granter tells us about it and the other two problems under our feet.
We still want to make smart terrain choices out there. Ryan Harvey explains why those lovely-looking feathers, when buried, can bury us under tons of snow.
There is powder up there. Way up there. But this is a stressed snowpack. Ryan Harvey warns us of the lurking dangers. Sorry about the wind noise.
