New Wind Slab Building

29th January 2015

Fresh snow to greet┬ámy arrival at Creag Meagaidh car park and the outrigger of Sron a Ghoire looking good under a full covering, with plumes of spindrift on skyline ridges – results of which soon to be experienced underfoot in localised high, lee sheltered areas. Still some fairly extensive scouring on exposed hillsides and in our plateau areas from recent strong winds. Early starts needed in current conditions!

    Theres a good bit fresh snow and so much more at lower levels this year for extended periods that there has been for a few years it seems.
