Snow cover

10th February 2009

(Above) The Post Face on Tuesday. It’s pretty quiet at the moment but ski-touring is good – skied all the way out from Coire Chriochairein to the farmhouse in a ‘one-r’.
(Above) Some single point releases in Coire Chriochairein. Nothing really threatening but an indicator that there’s still a lot of soft snow about in places.


(Above) Ice on some rocky bosses and easy grade ground in Coire Chriochairein. The ice shown in the lower part of the shot is at 700m. In the right conditions this little but atmospheric corrie can be a good winter skills training ground. Care is required when stability is poor as many of the slopes are regular avalanche paths – even low angled ground can be iffy as the run-outs from the avalanches are long and debris tips deep.
