Snøoverflaten består at kald løssnø og det er observert rim i områder som ligger i ly for vinden. Over skoggrensen har det vært noe vindtransport av snøen og snødekket er ujevnt fordelt.

En lenge kuldeperiode har dannet kantkorn rundt et skarelag ned i snødekket.

Det er snø til havnivå, men det et svært tynt snødekke i lavlandet.
