Windy and cold, brightening later,
17th March 2019
A cooler North-Westerly airstream and strong winds has brought further re-distribution of snow overnight and we have some isolated areas of poorly bonded wind slab on our higher ground mainly on North-East through East to South aspects above 750 metres. In a way it may seem a bit surprising to our visitors as the daffodils have been blooming along the glen between Kinlochewe and Torridon for several weeks now and it felt like spring was in the air, but high on the hill deep snow and underfoot cracking in the snow was evident – winter persists.
The weather cleared up a bit to become brighter by mid day but visibility on the higher summits was rarely good. The winds have remained strong Northerly.

Thank you so much for both the pictures and the guidance.
Must add, stepping into your own footsteps made my ascend less taxing.
Feel priviledge to experience fresh powder snow in such a stunning location.
