Bare Ground

28th January 2023

It’s currently around 50/50, snow cover to bare ground above 700m. elevation. And the lowest significant snow patch is around 600m. elevation. The snowpack that remains is well bonded and firm, particularly at summit levels. However, many summit slopes and ridges are bare.

Below are some panoramas of the Fannaich mountains today as evidence of the above.
