A bit wet and windy…
31st January 2024
Another challenging day in the Southern Cairngorms.
Storm force winds and heavy rainfall from early morning gave some difficult mountaineering conditions. A wind speed of 90 mph was recorded by the Met Office weather station on the The Cairnwell.
Despite the conditions, Glenshee ski area was able to open their nursery slopes with a large school group and the Ski Patrol training group doing battle and enjoying some skiing.
The snowpack remains firm and well bonded with the greatest accumulations to be found in North to East facing coirries above 900 metres and on the highest plateau areas.
