We’ve now had two days of heavy snowfall with more to come. There is deep unstable snow down to the Glens with a large cornice collapse noted at 550 metres today. Tracks and footpaths have been covered by deep snow in some locations with other areas threatened by loaded slopes above.
Roads are likely to be difficult, high routes are already closed.
