Wintry on Inland Mountains

29th March 2024

A dusting of overnight new snow above 700m thawed throughout the day, particularly at lower elevations and on sunny aspects. Otherwise, the snowpack is generally well consolidated and stable throughout. Looking very wintry above 800m. on the more inland mountains. The snow at higher elevations remains very firm, icy in places with serious run-outs in the event of an un-arrested slide.

Below are a few photos/panoramas showing the general distribution of the snow cover across the Torridon forecast area, from North/inland to South/coastal mountains.
