The Scottish Avalanche Information Service issues information to support permitted activity under current Scottish Government guidance.
Please be aware of current mandatory travel restrictions inÂ Local AuthorityÂ areas within Scotland and respect local communities by referring toÂ Scottish Government guidanceÂ and safe route choices for exercise. For further guidance please refer to the following information forÂ hillwalkers and climbersÂ andÂ snowsports on ski and board.
This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.
(Above) An Torc, or Boar Badenoch, Drumochter. A much depleted snow cover throughout the hills, from the thaw conditions of late.
(Above) The land rover accessÂ track for the hills on the opposite side (to the East of the Drumochter pass) were still holding onto drifted snow and allowed reasonable ski access from near roadside today.
(Above) Some snow showers started to affect the area at around 700 metres midday; a few more are in the forecast, although the fluctuating temps will see the Freezing level rise again to well above summit levels by the end of the period – a poor mountain day in prospect tomorrow, with gale force winds on the tops.
