Today Mike & I walked up to Cwm Cnefion to investigate snow conditions there, and the possibility of gullies in condition. We were looking to do Tower Gully or Flake Gully, but ended up on Broad Gully. Turf far more frozen today from around the 600m mark. But snow has a frozen crust, with soft snow & in some places soggy turf underneath. Routes have to be picked very carefully in these conditions. A good day was had practising winter skills, and generally enjoying being back in the snow in Wales!
