This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.
(Above) Coire Ardair access trail, significant snow loss below 600m; skis unfortunately barely an option for egress.
(Above) A misty looking Pinnacle Buttress appearing for brief periods through the murk today; the cloud was low for much of the time with showers falling as sleety snow around 600m. Some fluctuating temps overnight FL lowering to around 600 m during the day – so hopefully what cover there is will stay with us for now.
