More sunshine

9th March 2023

It was another clear and sunny morning, getting cloudier in the afternoon. Little change in the snowpack with a thin layer of soft snow melting on Southerly aspects in the sun and very firm, patchy older snow.

Surface hoar continues to grow. This, and the faceted soft snow beneath it, could form a very weak layer if covered with more snow.

Looking down to Creag an Fhirich. The sun has melted the snow on the Southern (right) side while the Northern side receiving sun at a much lower angle has retained it’s thin layer of snow.

North-East aspect on Meall a’ Bhuiridh showing the very thin fresh snow and the older very firm patches.
