After a red sky sunrise, high cloud thickened and lowered ahead of an occluded weather front slowly moving in from the South-West. SummitÂ snow arrived in Torridon around early afternoon and later in the north of our area. The general snowpack is refrozen and stable throughout. Some shallow areas of windslab exists mainly at higher elevations with an East to South aspect.
