Please be aware of current mandatory travel restrictions in Local Authority areas within Scotland and respect local communities by referring to Scottish Government guidance and safe route choices for exercise.

This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.

(Above) The ‘bridge to nowhere’ – well, actually to Moy Corrie  (it just felt like nowhere).

The SNH quad track for their deer extraction activities provided an access ‘route’ for egress  (wish I had one – a quad that is / not a deer!). The track managing to hold onto enough snow in the ruts to allow for ski travel;  strong winds were scouring many slopes in exposed terrain.

(Above) New slab deposits were building rapidly in sheltered lee areas and blocking readily between the skis today.

(Above) Challenging recording conditions at pit sit; with rapid build of slab on a cross-loaded WSW aspect at 550m
