Avalanche activity overnight and early doors.

3rd February 2014

Avalanche debris on a SE aspect in Coire Ardair. Snow had been cross-loaded into this shallow gully by local corrie winds blowing L to R in the photo, at 90degrees to the prevailing winds. Start zone is at approx 860m and the debris ran for approx 150m, was partially channelled then spread 100m wide. Crownwall 50cm high. 
The avalanche entrained a few rocks on the way down.
The Window & Inner Coire. Two avalanches here, one from below The Wand/Diadem area & from near to Crescent Gully close to the top of The Window itself. Very large cornices still in place.
The Post Face. Very wintry looking today & the face itself caked with snow. Deep snow on most approaches above 600m & a bit of a wade in moist snow away for the main drag.
