New snow.

26th March 2015

It was very cloudy this morning, started to break when coming down Glas Maol. It certainly felt a bit more wintry up high but it was amazingly calm and without much wind it felt very mild, around 0 at 1000 metres. Good blanket of new snow, most of it on bare ground but where it’s accumulated on old snow it’s moderately bonded. Areas with depth are fairly isolated. ┬áBit sad walking through a deserted ski area where you’d expect a bit more snow at this time of year.

Pit site today. Around 30 cm of new snow.
