Proper snowfall!

18th February 2022

At last the snow has properly arrived! A very much transformed landscape with deep drifts from the glens.

For those heading out on Saturday there will be some challenging decisions. The comment below was taken from our report.


Caution required: A very complicated stability map has developed with unstable windslab present in wind sheltered locations on most aspects. Select wind scoured and exposed areas for safe travel.

Very little snow overnight but it started to snow around 7am at all levels and hasn’t stopped since!



Unsurprisingly most of the roads quickly became impassible and the snow gates were closed throughout the area.

We were on ski’s today, not that we saw much of them!!
