Getting cooler

22nd December 2022

Early morning cloud cleared to give a fine day in Glencoe, cooler conditions have formed a breakable crust on the surface of much of the snowpack. Areas of hard and icy old snow exist on higher exposed slopes, ice also exists on rocks and in watercourses, these areas require great care and attention. Outlook is cold and dry with strong Easterly winds. Transport of existing snow may form areas of windslab in sheltered gullies and coire headwalls.
