Glide avalanche

6th April 2010

Here are a couple of photographs of the glide triggered avalanche on the south-west slopes (NO 158760) of Glas Maol. The crown wall is about 100m wide and up to 3m high. Debris is hidden by the intervening ridge, Leacann Dubh.
We have asked a few locals who say that they have not seen an avalanche here before. Interesting. There’s probably more like that to come after this big snow season.
Thanks a lot to Bill Smith of Glenshee Ski patrol for the photos.
