A busy day in Glencoe.

29th February 2020

It was a better day today, mostly dry conditions with just the odd light snow flurries, winds were fresh to strong from a southerly direction. There were plenty of folks out in the hills today enjoying the good snow cover. However, a word of caution, instabilities persist in the snowpack and avalanche activity was note in the glen today on a North-Easterly aspect. There is more snow forecast overnight and through the day tomorrow maintaining a ‘considerable’ avalanche hazard.

Looking west toward Altnafeadh the A82 road is where the least amount of snow exists.

Looking down the west ridge of Meall a’ Bhiuirdh with the summit of Creise behind. Note avalanche debis on the right.

North-Easterly aspect of Creise with avalanche debis seen more clearly most probably caused by cornice collapse .
