Punxsutawney: It Begins.
26th February 2023
(Above) The Post Face of Coire Ardair and the Inner Coire. Cold in the shade, milder in the sunshine. Good snow-ice where persistently shaded (-8.6 degrees C. snow surface temperature at 1300hrs). Long, icy runouts in some places – like the approach to The Window in the photo – await the unwary or ill-equipped.
(Above) The top end of Raeburn’s Gully, Coire Ardair. Quite a busy gully today: counted 8 ascensionists whilst I was in the bottom of the coire. To the two guys we met on the path. I think that’s you pitching it in the photo(?)
May be in for the best part of a week of dry, settled conditions so I fear the snow & avalanche reports may develop a bit of a Groundhog Day vibe!
