Creag Mhor ridge
31st March 2016
(Above) 1000m cloud base for most of the day and cold up high. Snow cover still holding up. If you’re straining at the leash for some ski-touring be advised that you’ll carry skis for at least 45 minutes before you hit snow. NE to SE slopes have best cover at the moment (Carn Liath plateau looking quite bare.)
(Above) The Creag Mhor ridge today. Snow line about 600m. Gloomy in the mist up high though it seemed to be quite bright in the glens all day. Noticed shower activity to the S and SW of our area – just visible in the photo. Trace of new snow on our patch.
(Above) Nice to have a golden eagle on overwatch for me today.
(Above) Seemed like ‘postcards & candy floss’ weather looking down into the glen. Pretty much freezing above 850m all day. SNH Creag Meagaidh car park in foreground with Loch Laggan & Ardverikie House (aka Glenbogle, from the TV series ‘Monarch of the Glen’) in the distance.
