A significant thaw
19th December 2020
The Scottish Avalanche Information Service would recommend that those wishing to enjoy the winter mountains refer to Mountaineering Scotland and Scottish Government advice regarding Covid-19 and outdoor activities.
Heavy rain yesterday and during the night has had a big impact on the snow cover, and the burns are in full spate. Coire back walls and slopes above 950 metres hold the most snow. Elsewhere the ground is mostly bare with ribbons of snow in hollow areas. The boulder fields on coire floors need careful navigation as the snow is soft and deep in places. Burns buried beneath snowfields are also a hazard.
