Thawing.

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.

It’s all change now with the thaw conditions in full flow, clag and drizzle on the hill today. We are forecasted some rain overnight with a touch of summit snow as the freezing level drops tomorrow. It’s likely to keep thawing at low levels this week.

The avalanche debris across the main Braemar-Glenshee road was cleared this morning. Quite a few tons to move so a big digger was sent to clear it. The road is still closed, very much still single track with deep water in places.

The debris canyon.

 

The avalanche was on a Westerly aspect and started above the rocks top right.
