(Above) A’ Mharconaich 975m, Drumochter. A little fresh snow cover above 450m today. Mostly cosmetic, although some deeper drifts have developed in selected, sheltered locations. Once the sun got up mid-am a little loose single point release activity was noted; seen here – lower skyline, centre. These events can often appear larger from afar with their widespread, roller ballÂ disturbed surface layers.
(Above) The new accumulations in the main appeared to be consolidating rapidly and showed little propensity for any tell tale cracking between the skis
