17th December 2017

A thoroughly minging morning and a rather pleasant early afternoon! And due to a major wardrobe error, it was a wet underpants day. Much snow has melted at lower levels, but still good amounts above 650 metres. All the burns were in spate – in fact there were burns where I haven’t seen them before!

Below: a before and after.


Looking into a grim Coire an Laoigh, Beinn Eighe. Much roller ball activity on the slopes on the right with one more significant single point wet snow avalanche observed.


Standing water – not good!


Brightening up over the Achnashellach mountains. Much snow melt at lower elevations.


Liathach. Good amounts of snow remain higher up.


The Sgurr nan Fhir Duibhe (Left) to Creag Dhubh ridge of Beinn Eighe. Cornice collapse noted along the ridge with one sizeable (size 1) single point wet snow avalanche triggered.
