2nd April 2019
(Above) Coire nan Gamhna . The elusive windslab from yesterday – more easily found today (after overnight snow showers produced a fresh covering). Greatest accumulations, as described on Easterly aspects above 1000m.
(Above) A more wintry looking Coire Ardair and the Post Face today – the overnight showers mostly cleared by mid am, with a few tailing out later in the day. In spite of the wintry look any new cover is largely cosmetic.
(Above) The opposite side from Coire nan Gamhna and another favourite snow collecting spot – our locally named ‘Boundary Wall Gully’ on Sron Coire a Chriochairein. The site for today’s formal pit. The location particularly popular since the sighting of a mountain fox earlier in the season……
(Above) …..a particular favourite that is of ‘The Apprentice’ – now of course on best behaviour for subsequent visits! Hmmmm……
(Above) Another shower passes through – this time on the South side of Loch Laggan. Bright, dry and clear by this time on the Creag Meagaidh range. This next 24hr period for us is somewhat uncertain with it’s estimations of snow amounts – falling as we do between East & West. Quite heavy snow amounts are forecast further East – although some drift our direction may well be possible, which could well require some on site re-calibration of avalanche hazard as the day progresses – our avalanche report for now is in what can only be described as ‘best guess’ territory!
