2nd February 2020
It was a definite return to winter conditions today with moderate snowfall from late morning. The old snow has a very strong crust and localised soft windslab is starting to develop. The winds are due to become much stronger tomorrow so we are expecting some redistribution of existing deposits as well as drifting of the new snow that is forecast to arrive.
I got the opportunity today to watch Scottish Mountain Rescue teams completing their avalanche training programme which culminated in them putting all the skills learnt during the course into a multiple casualty burial scenario. Hope I never need them but good to know they’ve been putting the training in! Some photos below:
