‘Rinse’ and repeat….

17th March 2019

(Above) Nothingness – with rain below 400m. Didn’t spot any people today!

(Above) The juvenile birch today  – the observant will notice a difference from yesterday. Snow now off the trees and wet tracks  (sorry – camera died, phone photo)

‘Rules of Thumb’ After new snow, when the snow falls off the trees (in the valley) – then stability has improved higher up.

Hmmmm! – new snow still being blown around and above 800m, new slab forming today.

Perla’s rule of thumb applies ( Veteran US avalanche educator)  – ‘There is no rule of thumb’!

    There was more wind blown snow all around the Loch Laggan hills than I’ve witnessed for a good number of months. Wonderful to watch as over the course of the day it changed the shape of some corries.
