4th January 2018
(Above) ‘Battleship grey’ skies again today which cast the landscape into a retro monochrome. Same as yesterday really, though drier with lighter winds. The main path in Coire Ardair. There was a widespread crust below 750m, including on the path. Skis for access on the path still possible with care but probably best not deploy your ‘Sunday-best’ planks.
(Above) WYSIWYG: monochrome at the Post Face. Poor visibility up high, too. A little (fairly recent) avalanche debris noted in Raeburn’s Gully noted, probably a result of yesterday’s snowfall and drifting.
‘Lower confidence in snow amounts and duration’ is what we had on our weather forecast from the Met Office for tonight and tomorrow. Best check recently updated forecasts before setting out tomorrow.
