Today was a lovely Spring day to finish the 2020-21 Torridon forecasting season. The bulk of the snow remains above 800m with some patchy snow down to 500m. and is generally stable throughout. The snow will likely remain for a time, slowly thawing and diminishing at all elevations, so enjoy it while you can.

Below are a few photos showing the extent of the current snow distribution in the Torridon mountains, together with big skyscapes!

Thanks for supporting our blog site throughout this Covid restricted season and we hope you have a good summer. See yuz next season. The Torridon Forecasting Team.
