After some overnight snow it was cold, clear and sunny with light winds today – perfect! Finn Bheinn was busy today with ski tourers, telemarkers, walkers and snowshoers.
Debris from 2 small avalanches was observed, both on East aspects and triggered by cornice collapse. Pictures below. Don’t let the nice weather lull you into a false sense of security.

Debris from a small cornice triggered avalanche on Creagan nan Laogh.
Avalanche debris on Meall a’ Chaorainn.
Surface hoar. This can form an weak layer if further snow accumulates on it.
Great skiing conditions.
The deer were staying low and are quite well camouflaged.
