The Scottish Avalanche Information Service issues information to support permitted activity under current Scottish Government guidance.
Please be aware of current mandatory travel restrictions in Local Authority areas within Scotland and respect local communities by referring to Scottish Government guidance and safe route choices for exercise. For further guidance please refer to the following information for hillwalkers and climbers and snowsports on ski and board.
This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.
Mild, light winds and cloudy today with a slowly thawing snowpack at most elevations save for the very highest summits. The relatively recent snow is mostly shallow and cosmetic although deeper drifts do exist, mainly N through E to SE aspects above 750m. where a continuing rise in temperature and overnight rain will accentuate any pre-existing weaknesses.
