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.

This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.

A dryer day with more pleasant winds, the trail breaking is still hard work above 550 metres. The paths are less icy now. There is moderately bonded wind slab around affecting steeper wind sheltered terrain especially above 800 metres.

Looking back up towards my snow pit test area on Stuc Coire an Laoigh. There is good snow cover at higher levels.

Looking downwards into Coire an Laoigh. The snow line is around the 450 metre level.
