Snow Cover

Var på tur ganske tidlig på dagen torsdag (ca kl10-13), og var stort sett i nord- og vestvendt terreng. Overflaten var skare som var mykere der sola hadde tatt. Tipper det var ganske mykt og vått i solsidene allerede tidlig på dagen. Så flere våte løssnøskred som ikke var helt ferske, et par stk hadde blitt nesten str 3 fra næremstindane, mulig de hadde gått tirsdag? Fant noen små fokksnøflak men de satt godt. Gravde ikke men inntrykket var fg1 tidlig på dagen, sikkert fg2 pga muligheten for å løse ut våte løssnøskred i solvendt terreng utover dagen. Vet ikke hvordan fokksnøen oppfører seg på de høyeste toppene, men flakene kan ikke være så mange eller store tror jeg. Det er nok litt kantkorn rett under overflateskaren en del steder men det er ikke et problem med mindre det kommer en god del snø over. Så ellers flere glidesprekker.
