There was fresh snow to around 300 metres first thing this morning, snow showers cleared to give a clear day with moderate West-South-Westerly winds. Windslab accumulations have continued to develop on mainly North through East to South-East aspects above 850 metres. Debris from a cornice collapse triggered avalanche was noted on an Easterly aspect.

Snow leaving the car park at the ski area this morning. This was already melting by my return later in the day.

A view of Buachaille Etive Mor as the clouds started to clear this morning.

Windslab accumulations continuing to develop in wind sheltered areas at around 1000 metres as snow is redistributed in the moderate West-South-Westerly winds.

Looking towards Creise where there is debris from a cornice collapse triggered slab avalanche. Debris in the centre of the shot, avalanche started where the gap in the cornice is, hard to see in this shot, unfortunately.

A view into Stob Coire nan Lochan,
