It was a cold day on the hill today with some visibility at times. The drop in temperature has helped firm up the snow at low levels but caution is still needed above 500 metres.

Not easy to pick out but just above the main A93, there are two avalanches. One in the central gully and one in the bowl on the right. Probably occurred last Friday.

 

Fair bit of drifting snow again but it was a better day than expected.

 

These snow blowers will be needed to clear the road on the Braemar side. Currently single track with large drifts.
