Beinn a Chaorainn snowfest
18th March 2020
(Above) Looking back down the ‘main drag’ up through the forest en route to Beinn a Chaorainn. That depth of snow was pretty consistent most of the way through the forest above 450m. Skis would have been handy for access today. Why didn’t I think of that? Bright at times during the morning but much poorer visibility and considerably colder during snow showers later.
(Above) Avalanche activity today in Beinn a Chaorainn’s east-facing coires during the morning and around midday. No surprise given the weather and drifting that had been going on. Older cornice debris also a feature. The cornices high on the rims of this mountain’s coires are mahoosive at the moment and a real hazard when navigating off the mountain in bad weather.
