A Scottish Powder Day
20th January 2018
One of those beautiful rare days where it was a privilege to be out in the landscape. If you’d been waiting for the perfect ski descent in the Torridon mountains, today was the day! In all my decades of winter walking and climbing in Torridon, I’ve not seen snow conditions the like. However, it meant that without the aid of snowshoes or skis, I was unable to reach the planned location for today’s snow profile and when the ‘powder’ deepened from shin, to knee to thigh deep, I gave up at 500 metres height! The sun has some strength now and it had an effect on the snow with multiple single point releases on SE to SW aspects on all the mountains.
