Friday 13th, Lucky for Some.

13th March 2020

It was a lovely day in Glen Coe today. There seemed to be plenty of people out and about who where lucky enough to have got the day off one way or another. Looks like a return to more normal (i.e. unsettled) conditions tomorrow.

The Buachaille looking pretty good this morning. Avalanche debris is visible below the crags near the left hand side of the picture. 

The Glen Coe ski area. This is probably the most snow here since the winter of 2013/14. Great to see lots of skiers enjoying the good snow and weather. 

Clach Leathad. Notice the avalanche debris in the lower centre of the photo.

Cracking in the snowpack indicative of weaknesses. Also seen are the trendy orange Mountain Equipment pants worn by West Coast avalanche forecasters (but a bit too cool for Creag Meagaidh forecasters).

Clach Leathad looking very Alpine.

Snowy mountains stretching off into the distance. Looking South-West from Cresie to the hills above Loch Etive.

Another shot of Clach Leathad from the summit of Creise. The former seemed to have caught more snow than the latter.

The Buachaille from an unusual Angle with Ben Nevis behind. Notice the avalanche debris at the base of the crags on the Buachaille.

    Re. the orange trousers. Do you also have a mullet haircut?

    I think you’ve been well & truly Tango’d.

    Abandon hope.

    I maybe saw you doing your pit from the Etive glades just off the ridge. Wondered who it was.
