Deep drifts.

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.
If you are heading out on the hill expect to encounter deep drifts in some locations. Ski’s or snowshoes are definitely the easiest way to get around at the moment.  If walking allow plenty of extra time.

A snow fence that leads to Corrie Fionn. Poor visibility in the morning with little to see above 800 metres.  Deep accumulations are building in any wind sheltered locations. 


Visibility improved in the afternoon making the ski descent marginally easier.  A view over Glenshee Ski Centre gives an idea about snow coverage.
