Thinking of heading up this thursday. Beeb and yr forecasts indicate it will have cooled down by the weekend, question is if there will be anything left in the trinity gullies by then? Or has it all gone already?

Any help much appreciated

Thanks

In reply to mat cooper: Did Snowdon via the miners track last Thursday and the snow off the paths was knee deep and powder. The trinity face looked superb. As its high up and north facing I'd find it very difficult to believe that all the snow has gone.

We were up there on sunday and it was melting faster than a very melty thing. Couldn't specifically see Trinity Face but I think you might be out of luck.

We've had +11C temps in Chester with lots of rain, so I wouldn't be surprised if everything had melted :-(

Most of the snow is gone over here now...there is still little bits in gullies and where it drifted but as others have said, it's melting very fast indeed.

Unfortunately I think we're out of luck for this weekend.

In reply to Dan Lane: somebody in the other snowdonia winter thread just posted an aerial photograph of the snowdon horshoe looking very white above about 700m, so i would suggest that conditions on the trinity face could be vety good on saterday...potentially. especially if any of the previous snow survived in the gullies and re froze creating a good base which may well last.

also in the proper winter thread - that photo wasn't taken yesterday!

In reply to Toreador: fair enough, it looked way too good to be true!
