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.
This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.
The low temperatures and strong winds made for another very cold day on the hill today, definitely not a place to linger.
There is still quite a lot of snow moving around with some poorly stabilised surface snow noted. Weak layers still persist at depth and are becoming weaker but currently held in place by stronger layers above them.

Drifting snow today. Very deep accumulations in places.
