More snow…

3rd January 2018

Precipitation overnight and during the day has started to put down a good bit of snow now with trail breaking required above 700 metres. Thank you to the lovely man who broke trail all the way up Stob Dubh today – you did a great job!

The freezing level rose to around 950 metres today and a lot of the snow was quite wet below this altitude. With colder air temperatures expected tomorrow, those surface layers are going to eventually become quite firm.

Looking across from the col on Buachaille Etive Beag to Beinn Fhada. The fantastic trail breaker on the left…

 

Stob Coire Raineach – popular with walkers & instructed groups today (parties approaching the col).

 

We had quite a few snow showers blowing through today giving poor visibility for a lotĀ of the time. Overnight precipitation on strong winds have produced wind lips and small cornices so care needs to be taken near edges in poor visibility at the moment.

Conditions on the top of Stob Dubh (958m) today.
