Ground Conditions

Reported on Tuesday, November 28, 2023

Time: At the summit around 1200
Snow above: 900m
Route taken: PyG path
Next report: Friday 1-12-2023

Snow and ice

A thin layer of snow above about 900m, covering the path in most areas above this, with some spots icy and slippery.

It is likely to be icy at all heights across the mountain, with some chance of snow at times in the coming days (see Additional Information below).

A fine day with a light breeze to begin with, becoming cloudy with heavy showers in the afternoon, these falling as snow above about 700m.

Essential equipment
Seasonally appropriate walking clothing, including lights.

Carrying snow goggles (like ski goggles) will protect the eyes from cold winds and drifting snow, making it easier to see for safer travel on the mountain.

Carrying an ice axe and some form of crampons will give you options to stay safe on the mountain where snow and ice is present.

Additional information
On the day of Tuesday's report the forecast suggests that the temperature at the summit will be several degrees below freezing for most of the time until the next report on Friday, with the possibility of freezing at all altitudes on the mountain, especially in shady spots. Temperatures as low as -8˚C (feeling as low as -15˚C in the wind) are currently forecast at the summit. There is also the possibility of some snow at times, so snow could develop at all elevations, and ice is increasingly likely to build on the paths at all heights.
