Snow: a desperately diminishing asset at the moment.

30th December 2018

(Above) Looking towards an only just piebald Sron a Ghoire from across Loch Laggan at Kinlochlaggan.


(Above) Looking towards Coire nan Gall from the A86 and Loch Lagganside. Paltry snow amounts in one of normally snowy coires.


(Above) The Coire of the People (aka Coire Ardair). Surprising number of visitors braved the path today in the horizontal, light but soaking rain. Fine effort, folks, but got the feeling it was more for health maintenance than recreation. They definitely weren’t there for the views! There is a little snow up around coire rims and at gully heads but it’s disappearing fast and the thaw is set to continue overnight and throughout New Year’s Eve.


(Above) The view west across the River Spey from near the Mains of Glentruim. The usually prominent Creag Meagaidh massif is totally obscured by cloud and mist and was all day. The minor hills visible in the shot are home to ‘Wolftrax’, our local mountain biking centre, whose car park was nearly full this morning. Good outdoor option in the present conditions, I’d say.
