A glorious day, but very cold with a high windchill. All change tomorrow as it will be an unpleasant and challenging day on the hill! Little change in the snowpack from yesterday except there is around a 6cm covering of new snow from overnight showers. Obviously, it also cleared overnight and winds dropped as there is an all over layer of surface hoar. As the winds strengthen overnight tonight, the soft unconsolidated surface layer will be transported onto sheltered lee slopes forming areas of fresh unstable windslab. Check out the Torridon Avalanche Report on our website for details.
