As expected we didn’t get to see a lot today. We did get through to Glenshee Ski Centre courtesy of the council snowplough, roadside drifts are rather large.
As visibility was poor we only saw debris from one avalanche however I’d be confident there will be plenty more out there.
The complex weather patterns continue to make it difficult to accurately forecast snow amounts but cold temps, snowfall and Easterly winds will continue over the next few days.

A hut at the ski area with recently a developed drift. Cornices have also formed at lower levels.

 

The winds have been strong recently. These icicles have formed at a jaunty angle.
