I would just like to warn everyone of a significant risk of avalanche in Snowdonia at the moment.

I am fortunate to have a job that involves flying helicopters around the hills of Snowdonia on occasions and what I saw today was quite frightening.

In reply to Brian Wills:
Good report. This thaw is going to rapidly weaken every one of the multiple layers in the snowpack!

Thanks for the links guys, i've forwarded them on to a few people.

One of our ex team members (who is also known to this parish) was talking about the avalanche conditions in the Berwyns last week..
