A snow day.

14th January 2021

Covid -19
The Scottish Avalanche Information Service issues information to support permitted activity under current Scottish Government guidance.
Please be aware of current mandatory travel restrictions in Local Authority areas within Scotland and respect local communities by referring to Scottish Government guidance and safe route choices for exercise. For further guidance please refer to the following information for hillwalkers and climbers and snowsports on ski and board.

It was poor visibility on the hill today. Steady snowfall over this last period has led to deep drifts forming in any sheltered location, it remains hard and icy on any windward slope.

We did a number of field tests at our ‘formal’ pit site which confirmed what we had seen on our journey up to this point.


Little visibility and flat light made it traveling around difficult at times. Sam doing a good job of staying upright on her ski’s!
