Mid-winter conditions

Taken in the middle of the day in early January, here are our test tiles in action. In the first picture we look past the snow-depth marker in the direction of the raised tile. Although there is 100 to 150 millimetres of snow on it, the situation remains reasonable.


The ground tile, on the other hand, is completely covered... as we expected. Drifting snow banks up against the side of the tile and covers it in a thick, uneven layer.

We shall continue to monitor the progress of the tiles as the Arctic winter drags on.
