A cold, sunny day.
5th March 2016
720m on the Creag Mhor ridge. Looking towards Loch Laggan & Glen Spean with Loch Ghuilbinn just visible in the far distance.
Weakly stabilised new snow propagating failure. Shooting cracks 1.5m long, 30 degree slope.
As above. Failure at 35cm.
Great cover in upper Coire Choile Rais. Beware the breakable crust if on foot!
Heading up the Creag Mhor ridge on skis. Fine ski touring though snow surface is varied.
The east face of Meall Coire Choile Rais, 1028m. Scouring and cross-loading clearly evident today after drifting.
Annotation to illustrate scoured and cross-loaded areas.
Puist Coire Ardair, 1071m, at the top of the Creag Mhor ridge. Coire Ardair down hill (very steeply!) to the right. Heavily scoured in places on plateau areas.
