Unstable windslab building.
28th January 2021
The Scottish Avalanche Information Service issues information to support permitted activity under current Scottish Government guidance.
Please be aware of current mandatory travel restrictions inÂ Local AuthorityÂ areas within Scotland and respect local communities by referring toÂ Scottish Government guidanceÂ and safe route choices for exercise. For further guidance please refer to the following information forÂ hillwalkers and climbersÂ andÂ snowsports on ski and board.
This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.
Snowfall started around 8am and continued throughout the day. Â Although winds were not too strong Â they were doing a good job at moving snow around the hill with isolated deeper areas of unstable snow developing in lee locations.
It’s likely to continue snowing overnight and throughout Friday as well, windslab development is expected to become more widespread.
