Improving stability.

8th March 2014

 Snow is becoming more stable but current concerns are collapsing cornices triggering slopes below. In many places the snow is deep and multi-layered. It may very well hold one or two people on it but a large cornice bouncing down the hillside is another matter. We’re losing the lower snow but there is still plenty higher up.
Today wasn’t particularly nice so here’s a picture from yesterday! Glas Maol from The Cairnwell.
