Good Friday in Glen Coe…

15th April 2022

Mild conditions have continued to affect the area, the freezing level was above the summits. Winds were light from a South-Easterly direction and it was predominantly dry. Greatest snow amounts are on North to Easterly aspects above 900 metres. The snowpack continues to slowly thaw and diminish at all elevations but it remains generally stable in all locations. Any remaining cornices are fragile and prone to collapse. The avalanche hazard is Low.

Northerly aspects on Meall a’ Bhuiridh more snow cover in the clouds.
