More snow reports from Mike P
Another update: I had an easy day on Pen yr Helgi Du today with a group of friends. Beautiful, cold weather. Lots of people about, even a few skiers. Like yesterday, we didn't feel the need to put crampons on as the snow is still powdery. Anyway, ice is forming on shaded slopes which bodes well. Worryingly, on the way up Y Braich there were quite a few areas of windslab sitting on a layer of graupel. I'm no expert, but we isolated a block and it moved very easily. It's worth bearing in mind that on other, steeper slopes potentially dangerous conditions could be forming.
