29th March 2024

A bright start to the day. Bit of hill cloud later. Yesterday’s mild temps and rain had led to an unstable period late on. Debris noted in various locations.

Thawing lower levels with a slushy walk out in the afternoon.

Although limited, certainly better conditions for the skiers, still a good hike carrying but decent conditions on top.

Freezing levels will be around 1000m on Saturday.

Some phone pics from today-

Small avalanches and sluffs from yesterday’s milder temps. Cloud starting to build mid morning.


Minor amounts of drifting with a change in the winds.


The West Ridge and Beinn a Bhuird in the background.


The plateau. Soft with a bit more base to the cover.


The West Buttress, note debris on the right.


Ski tracks on the col.


The skier passing under Douglas-Gibson gully.


Given he left his trainers here, ski’s on at 900m! Don’t think you’d manage to ski back to this level.


These lads heading for the plateau for a ski to the summit.
