Another cold and wild day. Snow showers, although short were quite intense at time and combined with the winds there was a fair bit of snow being moved around the hill.  The older snow is very icy.
Looks like after a brief milder period we’ll see more snowfall later this week.

Culardoch (900m) through the drifting snow.

 

Todays snow showers were quite heavy at times. Consequently there was also quite a bit of drifting in the very strong winds.
