When you are skiing this stuff, it feels like pillows and down jackets have spilled their guts under your feet. But an alpine temperature inversion is lurking, so Adam Sherriff makes his stumbling, I mean stunning debut to explain why this could be a game changer.
Yes, there is snow. But not much of it. And it isn't all staying in place. Kyle Hale - with emotional support from Ryan Harvey, Chris Granter and (introducing) Adam Sherriff - gives us the heads up on what's going down in the alpine. Short story: be careful. The snowpack is thin and there is a reactive surface hoar layer buried within, and another growing on top.
The spring skiing is pretty phenomenal these days if you get high enough. Kyle Hale takes a break from BBQing to remind us what concerns we should be still considering as we traipse through the remaining white.
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.
Despite the slobber in the valley, it hasn't been too ruff in the alpine. But still, hidden layers threaten to go feral. Baron the CARDA dog barks us through conditions in the Dogtooth range.
