Great General Cover

18th January 2015

Great general cover at Meggie,  touring skis or snow shoes really the only viable means of travel in the current conditions. Quite a few tourers out on the park today – undeterred by yesterday’s blog!

They certainly picked the optimum line off the hill and looked to have had a great run down from the Bealach on Sron a Ghoire to end their tour – very good effort!

Looking towards  Coire Ardair - great general cover.

....a fine effort to get high and the reward what looked like a great run down to end the  tour. Good call!

Deep cover on the main drag to Coire Ardair. Good for ski travel - not so good if you're trying to go climbing!

    Given the predicted temperatures the snow looks like staying for a good while.

      Maybe!
      ‘If nothing changes then noting is apt to change’ particularly relevant words of wisdom in our avalanche forecasting world.
      That said with ground temp a constant 0 it doesn’t take much for a small rise in ambient air temp to have a dramatic (and adverse) effect on playable snow – especially below 500m.
      For now – all is good, enjoy!

      Thanks for your comments
