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.

The thaw continues with only localised instabilities present on very steep North-East to South-East aspects above 800m. Generally the snow pack has good stability and continues to firm up overnight then soften during the day. Buttress are stripped of snow but some lower graded gullies and higher damper areas are holding snow and ice.

Meal Gorm is now quite bare of snow but the grassy gullies still have snow.
