A clear start but as forecast the clouds arrived with little to see above 800 metres by late morning. Difficult skiing in the flat light higher up, good to get back to the definition of the forest tracks although it’s shallow in places.
It starting snowing around 4pm, there is some uncertainty about how much snow we’ll get tonight, it could be up to 10cm.
More snowfall is expected to arrive on Wednesday evening and there could be fairly persistent showers throughout Thursday.
The outline of Stuic Buttress from the forest approach. Soon to disappear in the cloud.
Lochnagar starting to cloud over mid-morning. Some terrain is a bit firmer or holds shallow snow but it is still arduous walking if out for the day.
Corrie na Ciche, Beinn a Bhuird….only just.
Ben Avon, looking white at the moment.
