Snow Cover

No snowdrift Much loose snow (10-30cm) Generelt mye løsnø i denne fjellsiden, men stedvis innslag av vindpakket myk snøoverflate, tiltakende over tregrensen. Fokksnøflak som vi fant på dagens tur virker å ha bundet seg godt til gammel snøoverflate, men det finnes noen sjiktoverganger i fokksnøen med dårlige bindinger. Tilsynelstende lite spenninger igjen i fokksnøen.
