(Above) Coire a Bhein at the Eastern end of the Creag Meagaidh massif. The snowpack is now much depleted in the steady thaw conditions. The pit site today was top left of photo at around 830m, on an Easterly aspect;  the most recent, localised deposits although moist, are consolidating rapidly.
(Above) Some small fresh cornices around coire rims; limited wet snow instabilities are possible around these  locations with light rain showers, early in the period tomorrow.
