Poor visibility today.

4th March 2018

Very poor visibility above 850 metres today with the ever present constant Easterly winds.

Snowcover is highly variable at the moment, there is a lot of hard pack and ice around often with deep windslab nearby.  If your on ski you’ll find your self moving quickly between firm snow and deep unstable snow.

I only took a few pictures today, I thought about taking a few of all the  skiers enjoying themselves lower down the hill at  Glenshee but figured you would know thats happening anyway!

The freezing level is likely to rise to around 600 metres tomorrow. This will help consolidate snow at lower levels.

Area of windslab.


Small test slope triggered W aspect at 930 metres.
