/ Current ice conditions Chamonix, Kandersteg, Brunnital?
Has anyone got any recent information on ice conditions in Cham, Kandersteg and Brunnital (or nearby) areas?
I've been watching the positive temperatures lately, and checking out very patchy ice over in Austria and getting depressesd from all the sunshine. I know the temperatures in the west have dropped a bit, but has everything already been roundly trashed?
My information is second hand, but generally speaking, weather has been stable, sunny and daytime temperatures high. No recent significant snowfalls. That means easy approaches but ice might be brittle.
Thanks for the link! Very useful to have recent pics and info.
conditions are not great in Kandy but there's stuff about to do. Blue Magic, Rubehzal and Baretritt are in condition
and here are the pics from Adelbodan
Hope it helps get you out
