Persistent snow and Easterly winds

24th February 2020

Persistent snow and low cloud today particularly at the East end of the Glen lead to generally poor visibility. New snow and Easterly winds have formed weakly bonded accumulations of windslab on Westerly aspects. Many exposed slopes are firm, icy and unforgiving in the event of a slip. Axe and crampons essential. Outlook is for winds to back to Westerly mainly fresh with light and occasional snow showers, moderate to weakly bonded deep windslab will exist in sheltered areas of many aspects.
