(Above) The upper layers of the snowpack in most recent lee areas. Several weaknesses within the new windslab. All these sheared readily when excavating a hasty snow pit. No surprise then that there was some avalanche activity this morning at the eastern edge of the SAIS Creag Meagaidh forecasting area.
Quite a complicated snowpack: new snow weaknesses in addition to deep-seated instability issues.
