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.

A cold and clear day with only the very occasional summit cloud later. Some new shallow wind slab has accumulated onto South to South-West aspects affecting steeper terrain. Our forecast is for heavy showers with strong Northerly winds so we can expect much deeper accumulations of windslab developing overnight and tomorrow.

View down towards the village of Kinlochewe and the hills further to the East.
