New snow arrived last night and snow showers have continued through most of today lying mainly above 100 metres. Winds were very strong last night from the South-Westerly direction these eased today and were from the West-South-West and the freezing was around 400 metres at midday. Most of the snow below 700 metres is generally stable and fairly superficial in nature but it still makes for some hard work trail breaking as it obscures many important features.

The main A82 road this morning the elevation is 300 metres.
