2nd March 2019
I took the opportunity to have a quick scramble up The Stuic before the weather turned. It was a great start to the day, accessing the mountains via the beautiful Ballochbuie Forest, but banks of cloud quickly rolled in at around 1000 metres. The wind gradually increased through the day and it is has started raining now. The forecast is for moderate snow overnight and through the morning. It’s going to be driven in on gale force winds so localised accumulations of windslab will form. The old snow patches (as seen in the photo below) will become firm and icy with serious rocky runouts beneath them… We’ve had it easy for a while but it is definitely time for me to sort my winter rucksack out. There’s going to be snow on and off for the next few days so we can’t write this winter off just yet. Stay safe out there….
