Last Glen Coe blog for this winter season.

13th April 2019

Today was dry and sunny again but it felt rather chilly with moderate to fresh South-Easterly winds but spring is definitely here.

This is the thirtieth season that the SAIS has been producing avalanche information to the public. So, 30 years on….. we close another season (30th) with this blog. I hope you have found the service useful and beneficial over the years, we will return around mid December with more reports and blogs. Below are some photos through the glen today showing the remaining snow cover. The remaining snowpack is generally stable. Thanks, have a nice summer.
