Another fine day

28th February 2017

Although it was cloudier at the Eastern end of the glen first thing it soon cleared and turned into a fine, crisp sunlit day.  The old snowpack continues to firm up in the cold conditions and there was little evidence of fresh snow – just some very light redistribution by wind transport.  The wind freshened through the morning and it was chilly on the summit of Meall a Bhuiridh by early afternoon.

One of the larger sweeps of snow on Meall a Bhuiridh on the line of the ‘Spring Run’. The figure of a walker is just visible below the snow patch and further down the hill, the lower piste and lift on the plateau.

Some cracking in the surface layers of the snowpack was observed today
