Last report & forecast
12th April 2014
(Above) The Post Face in Coire Ardair today.
Last report and forecast of the season today, unless there’s a dramatic change to more wintry conditions.
Showers rattled through our area this morning with some snow above 1000m, very little in the way of new accumulations though. Rain at lower altitudes with very strong winds.
Principal low grade gully line remain complete, though Raeburn’s Gully is looking a little narrow in places. Snow cover patchy, of course, with larger expanses of snow above 850m. Ribbons of snow do extend down to lower altitudes (approx. 600m) giving good potential for longer descents for committed steep skiers looking to cherry-pick a few choice couloirs.
The cornice collapse issue is still with us though this has diminished somewhat; having said that the cornices on Beinn a Chaorainn are still a sight to behold.
