Rain in the glen but heavy drifting on the summits. Moderate snow showers today and frequents snow showers tomorrow. Wind slab instabilities will deepen and become more widespread. These instabilities are high on the mountain affecting  steep wind sheltered terrain especially on North-East to South-East aspects, with some localised instabilities also on N and S aspects, but again very high up. There is little snow at lower levels, the old snow pack remains firm and generally stable. These photos were taken in the far North-West, closer to the sea, further inland there is more snow.

Poor visibility on Sgurr a’ Chaorachain today.


Beinn Bhan, was a bit whiter this morning with a glimpse of short lived sunshine this morning.


Fence wire, well rimed up!
