6th April 2015
Snow cover still pretty good on snow-holding lee slopes. Windward slopes looking pretty bare though.
Partial full depth avalanche on Sron a Ghoire (again!). This slid on Sunday but new glide cracks opening elsewhere.
Beinn a Chaorainn 6th April. Crown & track of full depth avalanche visible. Slid Sunday?
Beinn a Chaorainn. Same view but on 2nd April.
Very large cornices still in situ and weakening in the sustained thaw. Photographed today.
New cafe open at ‘Wolftrax’, the mountain biking centre a few miles east of Creag Meagaidh.
‘Wolftrax’ is the mountain biking centre at Strathmashie on the A86, a few miles east of Creag Meagaidh. A local community-led organisation, Laggan Forest Trust, have just opened a cafe there, with the help of funding from the Cairngorms National Park. With showers (and toilets) too, it makes a very convenient pitstop if you’re passing by. Awesome espresso!
The cafe is in a brand spanking-new building.
Opened on Friday just in time for Easter.
Inside the cafe. Great facilities for hungry mtn bikers and other visitors. Brand new espresso machine, too.
