4th January 2024

(Above) Lochan a Choire and the Post Face of Coire Ardair. Another misty day above 800m. The snowpack is moist all the way to summits but a little more so below 900m.


(Above) Debris from a minor full depth avalanche just below the entrance to Raeburn’s Gully (lower arrow). Came from the steep snow laden slabs of Pinnacle Buttress (upper arrow) some time overnight 3/4th Jan, I think.


(Above) A misty view up into the Inner Coire of Coire Ardair. Still an awful lot of rocks showing on the approach to The Window.

Cooler temps anticipated on Friday which should firm up the snow above about 800m. A few light snow showers and light winds are in the forecast too so some minor windslab development expected high on lee slopes, though this is likely to be thin and not extensive.

Apologies for the lateness of this posting but I’ve been fighting to get WordPress to accept larger, better resolved photo files.
