Happy Days!

27th March 2008

Canada? – Nope…Carn an Tuirc! Check out the snow cover…Making fresh tracks of a different sort! No this isn’t Alaska…

“The Reward ” – The long ski back home…
So as you can see conditions were superb today – light winds and plenty of sunshine with good snow cover. The Grampian Police Mountain Rescue Team and Iain from Braemar Mountain Rescue Team were all out training today – and as reward for good behaviour they had perfect conditions for a change. The equipment you can see in the photos above can make a massive difference during a call-out in bad weather and works particularly well here in the South Cairngorms with the long approaches and large plateau areas where conditions can be wild.
The forecast we have been given for tonight and tomorrow is for heavy snow from the early hours well into tomorrow morning. This will be accompanied by very strong SSE winds that will veer WSW in the afternoon. The distribution of windslab is going to become extremely widespread and great care will be needed.
