Sunny Days.

6th February 2015

It was a fine and sunny day in Glen Coe today. There was no distinct foreign level. In shady locations the temperature remained below freezing at all levels, while on Southerly aspect the temperature rose above freezing, and the snow began to soften. Overall the snowpack is quite variable, I came across hard neve, breakable crust, windslab and softening spring snow on Beinn Fhada today.

The snow was quite variable. Softening in the heat of the sun, as shown by my bum slide track.
