Cloudy morning.

7th February 2019

It was a cloudy and calm start to the day. With little wind there had been a light covering of new snow on most aspects but otherwise not a lot has changed.

A monochrome morning. Plenty snow depths on the Southerly aspects. Snow on these aspects is bridged by a melt freeze layer with a deeper weaker layer of buried surface hoar in some locations.


A light covering of new snow on most aspects is likely to be redistributed by the forecasted strong winds.


It is possible to link together a bit of ski touring. Definitely don’t take your good skis!


Above Pinnacle area on Corrie Direch. Reasonable build up around the corrie rims but no cornices have formed. There was a lot of rollerballs further down the slopes.


Walkers returning from Carn nan Sac. The clouds cleared in the afternoon.
