The settled spell continues. With -13 deg at 3000m for the next few days, v icy above 2000m. The snowpack is generally very hard, icy and consolidated. Little avalanche danger. Great mountaineering. Ski touring - icy and lumpy off piste. Downhill skiing - excellent! 100km+ open on hardpacked powder. A few icy patches on Aguila run north of Veleta to watch out for.
