Spot the Hare…
12th February 2023
Another dry day in the Southern Cairngorms.
The snow cover is still patchy with the greatest accumulations on North to East facing coires above 900 metres. The snow above 1000 metres had firmed up slightly as the freezing level was around this altitude. I was again, very happy to be wearing crampons as I wandered around some of the steep East facing slopes on Glas Maol.
It was quite busy on Glas Maol today, lots of walker and mountaineers heading up towards the summit. I even met a bunch of Sixth form students from a school in Cornwall – they were in good spirits and enjoying the snow patches, despite a 14 hours drive yesterday!
Lots of Mountain Hares running around as well. With such patchy cover at the moment I am sure they are cursing their white coats which stand out against the grassy patches.
High pressure remains dominant for Monday, giving another dry day with Southerly winds.
