Analysis

Although the weather in Hanover was quite pleasant, we encountered moderate wind and some snow squalls above treeline. Although fairly benign by Mt Cardigan standards, the weather was more severe than some of the less experienced participants expected and they were seriously underprepared. We spent considerable effort at the Riviera warming cold feet.
