Dustings

30th March 2019

(Above) A bright morning on the Creag Meagaidh range, after some wintry overnight showers. Sron a Ghoire (L) Coire Ardair & the Post Face (C), The Window (R).

(Above) Sron a Ghoire’s NE Gullies – the dusting of fresh snow above 850m largely insignificant in the scheme of things….

(Above) The Min Window and Sron Coire a Chriochairein.

(Above) Coire Ardair Inner Coire – The Staghorn ramps (foreground L) now with ribbons of snow only

(Above) Creag Meagaidh’s Post Face. Easy gully (L) still complete. Post Face lines all broken

(Above) The car park steady today, if not exactly overflowing – tomorrow maybe better  for the likes of the horseshoe ’round’ of Cairn Liath / Creag Meagaidh / Sron a Ghoire – high pressure & light SW winds on the way…..

(Above) Not so busy at the Drumochter car park of Balsporran today . Some popular Munros often accessed from here include  A’Mharconaich and Geal Charn from Drumochter

So – how useful are our Creag Meagaidh forecasts for such ‘nearby’ ranges?

We had been attempting to look at this over the winter (although this season perhaps not exactly proving a great gauge !)

I think for now the jury remains out on this ….. (no ‘dustings’ in evidence today any rate 🙂  )
