Winter Has Arrived!!
18th February 2022
There was significantly more snow in Glencoe than expected this morning. Continuous heavy snowfall fell from early morning; this combined with a strong Westerly wind led to blizzard conditions down to Glen level. On the summits the wind was gusting 30-40 mph resulting in significant drifting adding additional deep windslab to slopes where a weak layer of graupel persists. The avalanche hazard is HIGH on mainly North-East to South-East aspects above 800m.
