After enjoying some amazing conditions recently it now definitely looks like we have returned to more normal weather for early March. The windproof was stuffed inside the rucksack and the Gore-tex jacket was on, with the hood up. We had more snowfall than expected but then we were warned that could be the case: It can be difficult to state snow volume in showery conditions. This stands for tomorrow as well – we may receive more or less than stated depending on where the showers form.
Poor viz at 950 metres today so no real photographs but we do have some interesting snow bridges over the Feindallacher Burn.

Poor visibility at 950 metres with some fresh snowfall.

 

Deep snow remaining in the Feindallacher burn at just over 600m. Ski pole and jacket for scale.

 

Thick snow bridge over the Feindallacher Burn at 600m.
