Bigger/deeper patches were "nice" snow. Consolidated (so no need for snow shoes) and axe/crampons would've helped on steeper slopes, at times anyway.
It wasn't especially cold. Maybe just dipping below freezing, maybe, in the early hours. Overcast days were like 8 - 12c and it was warmer when the sun was out. I didn't use any insulation just base layer, boreas and shell. Was fine. Felt cold in the sleet though.
There were plenty of patches down to around 800m, though much patchier. When I arrived above 1000m was mostly snow, when I left this was increasingly patchy. I'll try and upload some photos when I'm home in a Week or so.
Just returned from a few days in Finse. The guy in the DNT office in Beegwn had advised against going to Finse because of the snow. I thanked him for his advice and ignored it. Perhaps stupidly. There was a LOT of snow still lying. I heard muttering a that it was the worst in a decade or even living memory. The snow meant a lot of trails weren't really "open". It also started to met, and fast, again blocking trails. At least one bridge was down .
I hadn't taken axe,crampons or poles so big snow slopes and river grossing a were out for me (though others did them).
So, discovering that the hut at Finse had a rather excellent selection of microbrewed beers from it's own brewery I hung out there and explored the valleys beneath the glacier and had a whale of a time, albeit a very gentle one !
