Back to stormy conditions….

30th December 2023

After a cold night and a hard frost at all levels this morning dawned relatively calm and dry. By mid morning the change started, cloudy then the wind picked up and it started snowing at all levels. The gale force Easterly winds were bitterly cold with gusts of over 60mph. What a difference a day make! not much to see at higher elevations just a lot of snow blowing around creating whiteout blizzard conditions.

Folks on Mealla’ Bhuiridh just before the winds started to really blow and the snow fell and the visibility changed dramatically, the chairlift had to close.

The Aonach Eagach ridge snow covered.

Looking into Stob Coire nam Beith lots of snow blowing around a bit of a maelstrom up there.

Slightly calmer at lower elevations of Stob Beinna’ Chrulaiste 639 metres.

Stob Dearg and Creag a’ Bhancair (the black steep crag in the centre of the photo).

Stob na Cabar ~ Buachaille Etive Beag the A82 road on the right going down into Glen Coe.

Stob Dearg and Coire na Tulaich, again snow and spindrift bowling around the the higher coire.

Patches of ice on approach paths and on boulders.
