Last forecast of the season.

12th April 2014

I think the mountain hares are finding it hard making their mind up where to hide. With a Snowy Owl spotted in the area they probably should take cover!

The edges of the corries are very broken. many glide cracks continue to widen. Fortunately we have not had any heavy rain which is likely to lead to some activity from these zones. This newly developed crack extends a long way back from the edge.

Another deep crack.

Clear but windy at this point of the day. From the summit of Glas Maol. 

Looking down the descent of Glas Maol. Patchy snow cover, best on higher plateau areas and in corries where there is likely to be snow for a while yet.

This is the last forecasting day of the 2013-14 season for South Cairngorms. There is a lot of people that support us here, so I’d like to say thank you to-  Glenshee Ski Area, Braemar Mountain Rescue Team, Police Scotland, Balmoral Estate, The NTS Mar Lodge Estate, Invercauld Estate and Braemar Mountain Sports. Also many thanks to our sponsors – Mountain Equipment, Anatom and Garmin. 
Thanks to Colin and Sam for the days they did over the season.
