The Scottish Avalanche Information Service issues information to support permitted activity under current Scottish Government guidance.

Please be aware of current mandatory travel restrictions in Local Authority areas within Scotland and respect local communities by referring to Scottish Government guidance and safe route choices for exercise.

This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.

Cold conditions overnight with frost at all levels will re-freeze the older snowpack giving firm and icy conditions especially in shaded locations where serious run out potential exists in the event of an uncontrolled. slip or fall. Pockets of moderate to poorly bonded windslab will persist on steep slopes but these should generally be avoidable.
