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.

It has been a bitterly cold day. Windslab and underlaying weaknesses with-in the snow pack are present. Patchy light snow showers are expected tomorrow. As the freezing level gradually rises tomorrow we can expect some light hill snow showers with rain at lower to mid-levels so the snow pack will soften. There will be wet snow instabilities later.

Currently there is plenty of ice around, this will soften in the thaw and become a danger as it falls.
