Snow at low levels thawed a bit over the last 2 days and froze hard last night, low down there is a crust or very icy paths where people have walked making getting about a bit tricky.
Routes are quite buried, popular venues with tracks into them being my recommendation. Skiing has been quite a good option. Up to 30cm of new snow is forecast between now and the weekend. There will be a reasonable avalanche risk in places like the Helvellyn Head Wall and the bowl at the to of central gully Great End. The Gullies are not consolidated and would require good snow swimming technique.
