Looks like there will be some fluctuation in the freezing level over coming days. Tonight it will drop to 800 metres with light snowfall. Lots of snow going at lower levels but still good cover higher up the hill.

Rivers have been in full flow with ice damaging fences and nearby new plantations. Levels dropped slightly this afternoon.

Snow blowers and ploughs were putting a big effort to clear the last of the snow from the Braemar-Glenshee road today. Currently the road remains closed.


A view down Glen Shee gives an idea of current snow cover.


The Perth Ski Club hut. There is still plenty of depth to the snow on many aspects above 700 metres.
