A fine day on the tops

31st December 2019

(Above) The East end of the Creag Meagaidh range. Inversion conditions with a light valley frost overnight; clear and calm am, in Glen Sherra, above the Spey Dam. Winds freshened Southerly on the tops.

(Above) Isolated patches only now remaining in high plateau areas; here on the slopes of Coire a Bhein.

(Above) Coire Dubh – now just a quick scamper thanks to our super newly issued, lightweight Mt Equip rucksacks 🙂

The isolated snow patches in gully heads are now hard, refrozen and stable.

(Above) Coire nan Gall. Not hard to see why we get numerous avalanche runs here – with a rock slab base in the start zones (when we have snow that is!!)

(Above) Wind farms more plentiful than snow fields at present!!

(Above) Oh - dear deer…..!!
