15th December 2019
There were significant areas of fresh snow observed today, mainly due to heavier and more prolonged wintry showers across the Torridon area than was expected accompanied by a strong SW airflow. Accumulations of fresh moderately well bonded windslab are building in steep sheltered locations, particularly at higher elevations. Check out the avalanche forecast pages. However, another good day out was had – fully wintry.
Although the mountains around Glen Torridon are our core area for avalanche forecasting, peripheral areas include the Fannaich and the Applecross mountains. Around two thirds to three quarters of our observations are made in the core area, the rest in the Fannaichs and Applecross.
