(Above) Some ski touring and winter skills groups out and about at Meagaidh today Working hard for their adventure on Sron a Ghoire. It did look promising to start with new snow at all levels overnight.
(Above)….but then – there is little base above the heather and tussock until above 700m. ( inviting as far as the bridge!)
(Above) Some graupel showing up amongst the grains in today’s pit. Not an uncommon sight in our snowpack; never a stabilizing feature in new snow…
(Above) A bit of sunshine between the showers after midday on the side of Cairn Liath – picking out some East face catching features, referred to by the local stalkers (and ourselves) as ‘Trident’ Gullies (ctn) and ‘Balloon’ Gully (rt)
